An easy walk of about an hour and a half that starts from the village of Cisterna towards the settlements of Pinteri and Gerosa, now abandoned for decades, along an ancient road that connected them with the neighbouring village.  The route starts from the old stone millstone at the car park above the village; from there it follows the fields as far as the suggestive stone-vaulted spring of Fontanèi. Continue out of the woods and encounter some open water wells and an ancient calchera. Climbing in a zigzag pattern, the path soon leads to the abandoned district of Pinteri and the nearby district of Manfrin. Continuing on from Pinteri, the road continues with a short but steep climb overlooking the Terragnolo valley, in the midst of a pine forest. After about a quarter of an hour, you cross a path to the left that descends from Monte Finonchio and, after a short downhill stretch, you pass a spring and reach Gerosa, another abandoned settlement with the remains of two houses. Continuing along the level path, we reach Pietra. From here we take the tarmac road downhill that passes through Moietto and leads back to Cisterna.

Author’s recommendation

Around the area there are numerous paths with almost invisible detours, so pay attention to the track.

As you can imagine, the practicability of routes in a mountain environment is closely linked to contingent conditions and therefore depends on natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this sheet may have changed. Before setting off, find out about the state of the route by contacting the manager of the mountain huts on your route, the mountain guides, the visitor centres of the nature parks and the tourist offices.

Tips and hints

The path is mostly safe within the forest, except for a few points where it becomes more exposed: be careful where you walk.
