Those who prefer walking boots to cycling shoes can trek the Via del Gesso: an incredible 70 km trek from Imola to Faenza. This route has a challenging elevation profile and takes three or four days to complete. It crosses the huge, sparkling all-gypsum ridge that makes up the Vena del Gesso Romagnola Regional Park.

A more demanding 7-day trek, theVia dei Gessi e dei Calanchi, starts from Bologna.

For less experienced trekkers who prefer walks lasting just a few hours, the park offers plenty of options for short hikes or strolls. One of the most suggestive is the Luca Ghini Trail (SLG) in Casalfiumanese.
