Due to the morphology of the area, this itinerary is especially indicated for experienced bikers.
Along the Provincial road to Marciana Marina, at about 200 meters after the entrance to the beautiful beach of Paolina, there is a wide curve from which to the left starts the unpaved road that will take you to Redinoce and its small group of houses. After Redinoce, you will come to the localities of Campobagnolo and Lavacchio (a fine landscape of chestnut trees) and after passing the restaurant "Da Luigi", turn left into track No. 43.
This track enters a beautiful forest of chestnut trees and then continues through another forest of arbutuses and ilexes up a steep hill that is very technical and sometimes needs to be done on foot.
At the end of the track you will reach a paved road that connects Poggio with Sant'Ilario. Go left and uphill you will come to the panoramic track of Mount Perone (630 m. above sea level) from which, resting under the cool pine-trees, you may admire a long part of coast that goes from Marina di Campo to the Costa dei Gabbiani.
From the square on Mount Perone start going downhill (this part is also technical) on the unpaved road No. 5 that runs along Fosso Campotondo and reaches Sant'Ilario (207 m. above sea level). You will reach a fork: take to the left (to the right you will enter the village) and continue along the unpaved road. After about 1.5 km there is a detour on the left, take it and after some ups and downs you will return to Redinoce.
Alternatively, instead of taking the detour you could continue along the main road and after about half a kilometer reach Mount Castello on the top of which you can still admire the remains of an ancient Etruscan fortress.
