Good trail. Beautiful/one of a kind views. Heavily trafficked (and it was end of October and overcast). Go early. Ocean view Trails are closed if/when it rains hard, which is logical due yo smooth stones of path and hard packed dirt.

Nice walk, bit of an incline but easily manageable. Nice views of the coast. Slippery when it’s wet.

When you get off the train at Corniglia station you are faced with a climb of almost 300 steps and several switchbacks to get to the town. Great views all along the trail going north. Bring plenty of water!!

Very nice after dinner, from Vernazza to Corniglia, getting to see the sunset at the end of trail, hot but at least, no direct sun on the trail!

Luckily the trail was open for us. Fairly easy hike but still recommend walking poles just make sure you have rubber tips. A rain cover for your pack is always a safer bet. We had a misty day with just a few drops which kept us cool and were lucky that there was no rain.

Beautiful views from the trail of the Cinque Terre villages. Gets pretty crowded during the day - recommend starting early.

Pretty easy hike, with lots of shade and beautiful views. At almost the end, the track starts descending. As you get closer to Vernazza, there are a few beautiful photo points.

Note that this track is closed, tried to do it today, got to the start and got turned back. The start is above town and there is nothing in town saying that the track is closed.

great trail to walk not too testing, parts of the trail were closed off due to landslide. However we did manage to carefully get across. The weather was cloudy and wet which left the stone steps much to be desired for, when climbing up them and scrambling around to get a grip on something so you don't see your life flash before your eyes when there's a drop in the other side. Other then that it was exceptional with breathtaking views of Carnaglia and Varnazza which you could only get by taking this hike. Took us around a hour and 8 minutes to allow us to absorb the beauty that surrounded us. would definitely recommend just ensure you wear appropriate footwear and a walking stick would be ideal but not necessary.

Loved the Trail, has some good views for the sea. People were complaining about crowded people, well I didn't see anyone (Lucky Me). However before reaching Vernazza, found a closed road because falling rocks, I had to bypass that area easily and safely. Before that I had to find and alternative road which made me drift away from the city and toward the mountains. Anyway for people attempting the road its safe, just pass the warning sign and continue.

Easy trail with beautiful scenery. Crowded during tourist season, but worth the views.

The views you get on this hike are awesome. All the villages and the mostly untouched coastline makes for a unique experience. Difficulty : Moderate, It can be steep at times but not the biggest struggle if fit. Walk to or from Monterosso with this hike to make a great days hike, with time in each village. Mod - Heav Traffic. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Gorgeous views and oftentimes shaded paths. There's a fair amount of climbing stairs both up and down and uneven ground so I definitely recommend hiking boots or good sneakers. There's a path down to the sea partway along.
