Italy’s New Hiking Trail Will Connect All 25 National Parks

Soon, avid hikers will be able to trek through all of Italy’s 25 national parks along one long trail.

A new hiking trail that will connect all of Italy’s national parks, including those on the islands of Sardinia and Sicily, has been announced. The Sentiero dei Parchi, or Path of the Parks, is already a staggering 7,000 kilometers (about 4,350 miles) and is expected to grow as plans continue. The path will take hikers through the Dolomites in the northern part of the country, along the beautiful coastlines, and to famous stops like Cinque Terre.

Italy’s environment minister, Sergio Costa, noted that the path will be based on the current CAI (Italian Alpine Club) Path, which “runs through 18 of the 25 national parks and has 85 stages, out of a total of about 400,” according to a statement from the CAI.

Costa said that hikers who take on the massive trail will also be rewarded for their efforts. “For all travelers along the Path of the Parks we will also create a “passport,” a symbolic recognition for hikers who will cross the territory of each park and to reward those who have managed to complete it by stopping in all 25 national parks,’ he said.
