Destination

Sorna stream

Turn-by-turn directions

From the car park near the Church of S. Matteo in Cornè, go down the road towards the countryside below until you cross the signs on the right for the Sorna Path - Pont del Diaol. After passing the gorge, the route crosses a meadow used for pasture and then crosses the mule track that descends from "Zembrae". Follow it downhill until you reach the suggestive "Pont del Diaol". From here go back for a short distance to the crossroads for the Sorna mines marked by a special sign. Continuing downhill you will meet a paved section with wooden steps and then a metal walkway that crosses the stream to the left bank. The path continues for a short distance above the stream up to a vertical metal staircase that will allow you to overcome the difference in height of about 4 m that separates you from the entrance to the mines.
