Very nice trail with some very steep ascends and descends. The reward is the canyon, absolutely beautiful. The way back up was tough but it got your heart pumping.

The canyon is stunning! We hiked the easier route but the last bit is steep scrambling down into and back out of the canyon. Easier route follows a stream that’s a good place to cool off, and there are two natural springs on the way. The canyon consists of large boulders to climb through while you are surrounded by spectacular sheer walls of various colors. It’s twenty feet wide at its narrowest point. The path through the canyon is divided into three zones—green (easy), yellow (moderate) and red (requires climbing gear). We hiked halfway through the yellow zone where the trail markings become quite sparse. They ask people to be silent in the canyon so not to disturb wildlife, which only adds to the beauty there! This hike was one of the highlights of our trip to Sardinia.

This is a very cool and fun hike. The hike down to the canyon is nice but not that exciting. Once you get there it gets a lot more interesting. The canyon is very narrow and filled with large boulders that you have to climb over, around and navigate. The wall are so steep and high that you will not get a GPS signal. I tried to make this into a loop but I reached a point where I could not go any further without any climbing gear, so I turned around and headed back out of the canyon. My recording is a mess since there was no signal, so it looks a little strange.
