Sarnano and its lost waterfalls

Sarnano is a pretty small town at the foot of Monte Sibilla and on the edge of the Monti Sibillini national park.

There is an easy loop around three waterfalls, two of which were re-discovered, hidden under vegetation, in 2020. They had disappeared for a number of years, in spite of being close to town and very accesssible by foot.  A trail has been marked and named “The path of the lost waterfalls”. Apparently, on the other side of town, they expect to uncover a few more, so a second path may open in the future.  This summer has been very dry, so there was not as much water as there would be in spring.

What has brought us back to this region of Le Marche is Reba, a one-year old, sweet-tempered Rhodesian ridgeback and we took her on walks while our friends went on a holiday.

Sarnano et ses cascades perdues

Sarnano est un joli village perché au pied du Mont Sibilla et en bordure du parc national des Monts Sibillins.

Il y a une balade facile pour voir trois cascades, dont deux n’ont été re-découvertes qu’en 2020.  Elles avaient disparu sous la végétation bien qu’étant très proches du village et d’un accès aisé. Un nom a ainsi été trouvé pour ce tour : “Sentier des cascades perdues”.  Il semble que d’autres cascades soient découvertes de l’autre côté de la ville et il pourrait bien y avoir un nouveau sentier dans le futur. Avec la sécheresse, les chutes déveersaient moins d’eau qu’au printemps.

C’est Reba, une chienne d’un an, Rhodesian ridgeback qui nous a ramenés dans cette région des Marche.  Nous l’avons emmenée faire de belles balades pendant que nos amis partaient en vacances.
