Really super trail but someone should have posted something about hunting season being open. Lots of shotguns heard along the way.

Not much you say other then... wow. :o

The views over Amalfi and out to the sea are worth the steps! The mills are a nice surprise as well. Go left at the first fork near Amalfi and your hike up won’t be as steep/full of stairs.

If there was a UN World Heritage Hikes list, this would be near the top.

Very nice forest hike and panoramic views from Gasthaus Seespitz to Virgilius Mountain Resorr

This app is hopeless, the maps won’t load even if you have pro.

Escursione molto bella con delle panoramiche in alto affascinanti. Attenzione quando scendete, le indicazioni non sono evidenti e potreste perdervi. Quando arrivate alla seconda croce seguite la staccionata con il filo spinato e vi riporterà giù al parcheggio!

Incredible hike! The whole thing is actually 32km long.. took me 6hrs to finish.. I confusing in some of the villages to find the right way.. I have the gpx file if anyone wants it.. email me at dagham67@gmail.com

Lots of fun and easy to run!

This hike was a spur of the moment, the wife and I decided one morning to see how much ground we could cover. We are very active, in our minds it was fairly easy. There were some breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea but there was also a lot of time off the coast. Will do this again next time we are in the area, great way to breakup the gluttony of vacationing in Italy!

Great coastal trails with village stops!

ottima applicazione!

Un giro turistico del Lago di Barcis che se fatto come da GPS ha pure una parte di buona difficoltà di percorso.
Molto scenico l'intero giro in giornata non piovosa e visita di due forre che si incontrano nel tragitto.
Consigliato dopo 2 giorni di percorsi di allenamento.
Punti storici di rilievo.

The last part up to the dinosaur footprints was too tough for our kids, but the rest of the hike was great.

Beautiful scenic trail, short difficult climbs but well worth the effort. Have a beer at the Rifugios to take in the views. Many short offshoot trails to explore. 30€/vehicle for toll road to parking lot or 8€/person for the bus, bus was big and looked to be able to transport everyone waiting. 0,20€ for bathroom at Rifugio. Coming from years of living in the flatlands of Texas and not training for hiking at all prior to this trip, I found this trail to be easy to moderate, definitely not difficult with a decent base level of fitness (friend did this without problems while carrying a 15 kilo child on his back).

it is in Veneto Region, not Piemonte (Piedmont)! please correct it. Thank you

L’anello di M.te Lubia e M.te Vogu [assieme ai M.ti Bernadia, al Mia e al Matajur sono gli unici elissoidi calcarei delle Prelpi Giulie] è ( dovrebbe) sviluppato dal Sent. CAI 753 dipartendosi ed arrivando a Montefosca. In verità l’anello si interrompe nei pressi della cima di M.te Vogu poiché la Commissione RAFVG – CAI hanno deciso di dismettere la seconda parte anche per reali difficoltà. Purtoppo l’hanno evidenziato solo all’arrivo ( vedi foto) commettendo una GRAVE MANCANZA e mettendo in pericolo escursionisti non all’altezza delle difficoltà effettive sul percorso.

Si parte dalla Latteria di Montefosca e seguendo il segnale CAI753, per una scalinata privata in cemento fino all’ultima abitazione, si giunge all’inizio di un sentiero acciotolato che in 300 metri porta ad una strada asfaltata ( porta a Fracadizze) non segnalata su AllTrails.
La si segue per circa 300 metri e sulla dx si trovano due segnali CAI 753 e 744; si imbocca il sentiero su roccette fono all’uscita su una carrabile sterrata chiusa al traffico ( LR 15/ 1991). Si prende a dx e la si segue per circa 3 km fino ad una biforcazione: a sx porta al M.te Lubia a dx al M.te Vogu.
Giunti al M.te Vogu o nelle prossimità, i segnali bicromatici del CAI divengono sbiaditi, radi e/o mancanti. Per una mulattiera a doppia ormaia ma completamente inerbita si prosegue in leggera discesa fino ad un talus di massi calcarei davvero pericolosi ( vedi foto); infatti tra gli stessi la formazione di ponti di fogliame coprono profonde buche. Superato con difficoltà inattesa si percorre sentierini percorsi da fauna stanziale e non " a piede piatto", ricoperti da fogliame scivoloso. Per tre o quattro tratti occorre massima messa in sicurezza alpinistica.
Per un canale intuibile a fatica si giunge a dei terrazzamneti antichi che preannunciano un insediamento umano del passato con stavolo diroccato, impiantato di stalla e pure un pozzo.
Sempre per tracciato appena intuibile si giunge sul retro dell’ abitazione più settentrionale di Montefosca.
La seconda parte é SCONSIGLIATA per oggettivi pericoli.

Look out for the ficchi tree in September - lovely ripe purple figs

This is a good well marked loop. Parking near the trail head may be challenging but there is a parking lot in town center. In the summer it’s very dry up there. There are some nice views of Tivoli and the Roman valley. You’ll want mosquito repellant for sure. There are some picnic areas on the mountain and you pass through a horse area with a trough with running water. I’m not sure if it’s potable though. I’d say 70 percent of the trail was in the forest shade. The description says it’s kid friendly but they may have some trouble on the really rocky parts.

This is a beautiful stretch of coast all located in Liguria (not in Piedmont). Best in spring and autumn (but the sunsets in the winter may be magic).

Very nice walk on gravel road most of the way. Only near San Gimignano is there traffic.

The trail leads through the forest and half of it leads through a canyon. Instead of going through the canyon you can also decide walk back on the road. To walk through the canyon you need to purchase a ticket and wear a hardhat. There's also an optional "train" that will take you through the canyon.
The woodland trail is decent, some place are a bit slippery/muddy, so proper shoes are recommended.
The canyon path is all flat and very easy to walk. Parking near lake Barcis can be a bit difficult as it is very busy during the weekend and summer.

The terrain is manageable by most people. There is nothing technical or hard but lots of ups and downs and steep sections. There’s were some people wearing walking sandals but a better choice would be to wear athletic shoes and definitely not flip flops. Some might find it difficult if doing the hike in one day. We started in Monterosso around 8 o clock in the morning to avoid the August heat. Remember to bring lots of water on a sunny summer day as many parts of the trail are not shaded. We made 30- 60 minutes stops in each town then took the train back to Monterosso. We regretted not spending more time in each town. This was one of the most beautiful hikes we have done with lovely views of the sea and grape vineyards along the way. As we proceeded along the trails we were treated with gorgeous views of each colourful towns as they came into sight.

First off my fellow hikers please do not follow my map! My GPS tracking looks like I’m a caged mouse scurrying around looking for her cheese! I couldn’t even find the gelato store when I got off the Ferry in Varenna

Easily manageable, with very nice views and forests. We would recommend to skip alm by the lake - too many tourists and have proper lunch at Barenbadalm - its much less crowded and provides panoramic view as well!

excellent and fun

Fantastic hiking trail! breathtaking views and you can stop in all the town's to explore along the way. great day.

Great trail. Small but beautiful beach with wonerful views throughout. Parking below trailhead.

Did this a few years ago! So worth it. Late September and early October are the best times to visit Capri. We took a day trip here from Sorrento on a ferry, which was fantastic. Walking Capri is like walking in a dream. The beautiful views will leave you speechless as you walk up the city and charming, very tiny, streets. Bella!
