From San Lorenzo to Ripafratta

Tomorrow the clocks are reset to winter time, the times below reflect this already!

Starting from San Lorenzo which lies at the road leading from San Giuliano Terme to Lucca, we climb up a valley below Monte Moriglione, and make our way Northwest through the lower hills of the Monti Pisani, which are covered in forests. The highest point will probably be around 400m above MSL, so it should be a quiet autumn walk.
