Known as destination for excursions, one-night campings, picnics and barbeques, the Logarghena Meadows are huge fields opening just under the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines at 1000 meters a.s.l.
As it would be easy to imagine, the best moment to spend a day on the meadows, would be the Spring and Early Summer, when the sun warms them and the flowers, especially daffodils, bloom. And it is to the jonquils (yellow daffodils) that an event is dedicated to each first Sunday of May.
Once, these meadows were almost entirely used as mountain pastures and up until today is not rare to encounter some flocks, even if there are not as many animals as there used to be.
The Logarghena meadows are cut by many trails heading towards the Apennines and especially the nearby Orsaro and Marmagna mountains and the Saint Lake. These fields do also are on the way for all those trekkers heading to the Rifugio Mattei, the Capanna Tifoni and the Rifugio Mariotti.To get there, you can follow the trail coming up from Pontremoli and passing by Arzenigio, or you could arrive by car passing through Serravalle.
To spend a day (or even just some hours) at the Prati di Logarghena with their magnificent view is definitely something to be done!
