You can download a complete map of the Sentiero delle Burraie in .pdf format, divided into 6 pages (A4 format), and print them at home (also works in black and white). For this trail, use sheets: A30 – B30 (only the brief first part requires B20). Of course, it would be better to keep with you the beautiful Map Guide of the Sentiero delle Burraie (made by SELCA), available at the Visitor Center of the ANPIL at the Santuario del Sasso or from the Office of Public Relations of the Commune of Pontassieve.
