Mount Smoke Stack is the highest peak of the Apennines Cesenate and touches 1407 meters.
There are two theories about the origin of its name: the first is that it is from its top is often shrouded in a thick fog, and the second is that it is a contraction of "Flumaiolo", since on its slopes there are the sources of the Tiber, Savio and many other streams. At 1200 meters above sea level there is a small fountain that flows directly from the mountain. A stele remembers that "here comes the sacred river to the destinies of Rome": the Tiber River!
The mountain is covered with beech woods, from fir trees, turkey oak and chestnut trees, but there are also meadows and pastures. Numerous trails of varying difficulty allow you to go trekking, horse riding or mountain biking. Also here it is the only ski resort in the whole area of Cesena with downhill slopes and Nordic skiing. In the rocky walls above the crags you can also practice free climbing.
