La strada di campagna che scende dai ruderi di castel maggiore (bel rifugio militare della Prima Guerra mondiale esplorabile sotto le rovine) passa tra alberi di castagno davvero maestosi, molto belli nell'abito autunnale da metà ottobre, quando si possono vedere i coltivatori diretti impegnati nella raccolta del Marrone di Castione DOP. E' preferibile prendere la prima strada in discesa (i cartelli SAT segnano infatti quel sentiero) perchè l'altra strada è proprietà privata (come segnalato nelle altre recensioni).
