This course is definitely one of the most evocative of all the cape, but in some places is quite challenging. It is therefore advisable to wear shoes suitable for uneven paths and carry a plentiful supply of water (on the way, very sunny in summer, there are no fountains or water faucets).

It starts from the road, starting from the churchyard of the church of San Rocco continues along the coast. After a few minutes, past the stairs leading down to Punta Chiappa, cross the small village Mortola, a small group of truly distinctive homes.

Leaving behind the village, the trail enters the woods and arrives, after approximately 20 'in places "Fornelli", from which, on the left, you can go to places Narrow Stones (Pietre strette).

Continuing, however, after a stretch of sloping steps follow some ups and downs of rock irregular but easy to follow that, out of the woods, overlooking Punta Chiappa, Camogli.

After about 40 'from the start you get to places Batterie, magnificent viewpoint over the bay, where you can see the remains of the bunkers dating back to World War II.

From here on, the route becomes a little more challenging for some points where you have to go directly on the rock overlooking the sea. The use of chains (sometimes redundant) facilitates the way, especially in a short stretch where the rock has few points of support for the feet.

Small difficulties are paid by a breathtaking view of Golden and Punta Cala Torretta and the intensity of the sea below us.

The path forward, a little narrow and bumpy, with some ups and downs on the rock steps up to the crossing of a stream in dry (the presence of some chains indicate the presence of water at certain times of the year).

Here, paying attention to the signs (the path is not clearly delineated), continue on the path that begins to rise. The climb, very steep and tiring, the first section begins with a very sunny and for advancing through the woods and reach, in about 40 ', the peak near Tower Point.

The last part of the path, all downhill, develops in the middle of trees and ends after 25 ', landing in San Fruttuoso of Camogli, opposite the spectacular Abbey.
