Description
Waypoints (0)

Beautiful loop trail through a nature area with ruins of old mills. It culminates at Antica Ferriere - ruins of an old iron works. If you veer right after the ruins you can take the path to Pontone for a cafe stop and views of Amalfi. Afterwards, it's 899 steps back down to the Amalfi area. Alternatively, you could park in Pontone and do this as a loop from there.

Take left trail up, Right one lots of steps. How did that car get up there the other side of the closed road (on the return loop). Lovely walk, so many lemons!

מסלול נעים ויפה, מתאים למספר שעות של הליכה איטית. החלק המערבי מלא בשרידים מעניינים שכדאי להתעכב בהם. הלכנו עם שלושה ילדים קטנים, והתחלנו ממזרח, דרך המדרגות. הילדה בת 3.5 קצת התקשתה אבל הצליחה. אם הולגים עם ילדים, מומלץ להתחיל ממערב.

We hiked about 1.3mi of this trail on a sunny December day. At about 1.1mi there was a landslide but that was fairly easy to pass although it was very muddy. Then at about 1.3mi bridge was out, someone more adventurous and athlete could probably make it across but we turned back. It was still beautiful hike along the old ruins and waterfalls, and there was also lot of water coming down in all waterfalls.

Fantastic, 111 flights of stairs, 6 miles from the port and back. Have more than the three hours I did to enjoy the beauty of the hike-specifically the waterfall side.

Head further up the road past the initial set of stairs to the Millwork Museum turn right up the hill and find a much better staircase that follows the Valley and great views. The natural trail is adjacent to the stream and falls you can hear throughout. On your decent after you hit road make sure to stay left for a final ascent which is marked on the wall. Well worth the effort and the break from the crowds. Great views of Amalfi from a fresh perspective and easily completed in just over an hour even with pics and a moderate pace. Enjoy

Such a nice hike and with the river and waterfalls along the hike. You can take a swim in the cold water.

the waterfalls were refreshing to swim in during the hike on a hot day. at the end of the hike you can pay 5€ to see paradise falls, another 30 mins jaunt.

This trail was over my expectations. Plenty of shade on the way up along the stream, several old ruins along the way and at the way back, an astonishing view over Amalfi. Think of that all the stairs on the way down may be a problem if you have knee injuries. I would definitely recommend this trail to everyone visiting the area.

This was the best thing we did on Amalfi. Spectacular views from the top as you hike through lemon groves. Started on the right up the stairs and came back through the woods. Took about 1.5 hours.

It was a great hike! We really enjoyed it even though we started the hike going up all the steps but it made the way down lots of fun will all the Ruins and great views.

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.
