The peaks are on average 2000 meters high, the highest is that of Monte del Passeggio followed by Pizzo Deta, Monte Fragara and Monte Ginepro which together constitute the southern massif.
The waterfall of Zompo lo Schioppo represents the highest natural waterfall in the central Apennines after that of the Rio Verde di Borrello; in fact, the waters precipitate from a height of over 80 meters and then flow downstream towards the town of Morino. The flow rate of the waterfall, originating from karst phenomena, depends on the amount of rainfall that occurs during the year.
