Description

On the mountainside of the S.P. 92, in Contrada Piano del Vescovo, a short plateau leads through the mountain asperities. The 2200-metres trail unfolds on a track that follows an impluvium on the left to quickly gaining altitude and passing near a small spring located near an old beech tree whose folded trunk resembles the back of a crouching lion. The site is called “Acqua Rocca degli Zappini” and is located at the top of a lava wall used as a climbing wall. The trail keeps rising until it reaches the ridge of the Serra del Salifizio overlooking the Valle del Bove. There it crosses trail no. 701, which can be taken in both directions. Hikers can also descend to Valle del Bove by the Canalone dei Faggi or one of the two adjacent rills.
