About this book

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.
