The 50 routes in this guide cover the highest, wildest and most dramatic areas to be found on Sardinia. Set in an area formerly proposed as a national park, highlights include the rugged Ogliastra limestone coast and Gennargentu granite mountains. Routes use newly-waymarked forest tracks, traditional shepherds' paths and mule trails through dense macchia shrubland.

A mixture of classic trails and new paths combines the popular and little-known. Ranging in difficulty and length (with some stepping away from well-trodden paths), many routes begin in quaint, historic mountain villages. Comprehensive planning information and details of facilities along the way provide everything readers need.
