The entire territory lends itself to excursions either on foot, by mountain bike or on horseback.  Trips are organised by “Il Ghiro” of the CEA San Martino for trekking enthusiasts and by the Happy Bike Montefeltro Association for mountain bikers.


Routes and paths

There are also brochures and programmes available for lovers of horse riding and cycling.
Recently new excursion guides have been put together on the four Comunità Montane of the Montefeltro and other local areas.
