Beautiful hike
Sep 2021 • Couples
We did this hike on Sept 20 which is a Monday. Fairly easy except the River crossings while holding the rope are a bit tricky. Wear good shoes. The blue water Is amazing and makes for great pictures. Finding the beginning point and finding parking are a challenge but just stay patient. We met many nice people - it was not crowded but definitely not empty either. One strange and funny thing … a young man and woman couple completely naked swimming and standing along the water for all to see. People either laughed or walked quickly by.

Nice trail, took us about 1h to get from one side to the other. Very nice scenery and different water falls. Clear and fresh water.

Absolutely gorgeous river trail! a must do
Jun 2019 • Couples
Absolutely gorgeous easy hike along the river in Colle de Val D'Elsa with my 2 sons and their wives! you cross over on rocks several times but easy. It is obvious the group who maintain the trail take great pride in the area! so perfectly clean and beautiful and so lovely to take a little picnic! quiet peaceful with cool blue water. go on short hike or go longer. we went back the way we came and swam and picniced on the way back ❤️

Fabulous natural walk away from the crowds.
Jul 2019 • Couples
Quite hard to locate but worth the effort. Lovely turquoise river walk with plenty of waterfalls and swimming spots. Take a picnic. Not a flat walk, there are several steep climbs so beware if you have impaired mobility. Shady. You can see trout in the water. A great rest day from the big cities. Recommended.

Beautiful, easy walk in Tuscany
Oct 2018 • Friends
Our group decided to walk this woodland path while walking the Via Francigna from Lucca to Siena, and it was one of the hightlights of our walk. It is very well maintained, and an easy hike. It takes you along the river, where you will see some beautiful falls, and walk across the river over rocks in some areas, which are fairly easy to navigate. There are a couple of spots along the way for picnicing or fishing.

Oasis in the middle of town
Oct 2018 • Couples
If you want to get away from the traditional sightseeing of churches and centuries old buildings, Sentierelsa is the perfect spot! What a great way to stretch your legs and enjoy nature...we started at the end of the trail and walked to about mid point (#7 on the map) and plan on hiking the 2nd half in a few days. It was quiet, peaceful and beautiful sunny weather! We only encountered 1 other couple but did run into a few guys setting up their fishing spot. All in all, it was a great way to spend a few hours away from the normal sightseeing!

Great Woodland walk
Sep 2018 • Couples
This is a really nice short woodland walk, which crosses the river Elsa a number of times with stepping stones / wooden bridges. The river is a beautiful blue colour due to the limestone.
The place can get very busy at weekends.
The full walk from one end to the other is about 1.5 Miles.

Surprising waterfalls and rapids
Sep 2018 • Couples
It wasnt that easy to find but once in Gracciano by the roundabout over the river there is a small car park. Straight away you encounter the blue river and falls. Totally unexpected to find such big falls and pools here. River is very blue which appears to come from the white silt. Nice walk.

Great hike and swim
Aug 2018 • Family
Took the glass elevator down to the street market and then walked over to the Sentierelsa for a hike, swim and picnic lunch. Beautiful, cold, clear blue water with small pools and waterfalls along the way to find your own special swimming hole. Mostly local couples and families, but we felt welcome. Probably only hiked 2/3 of the way from Town, but a nice break from touring towns and churches for our teenagers, and very refreshing to swim and eat after a short hike... enjoy!

A cool escape
Aug 2018 • Couples
Beautiful turquoise waters, refreshing shade, a pleasant nature walk. It has it all. Very crowded, but we arrived around 4 so we found a perfect place to set up camp and go for a refreshing swim. If you have them, bring rubber shoes as it will make everything much easier. Much more refreshing than the sea, the water is very clean. I imagine on a weekday it would be possible to avoid the crowds.
