Let's discover together the wonders of the waterfall environment
This route is characterized by its great value both under the naturalistic and landscape profile and under the historic and cultural one. The trail is almost entirely within the Site of Community Interest (SIC IT 5220017), so classified due to the presence of vegetation of considerable scientific interest, to the striking panoramic views on the Valnerina (edge of the cliff, trail no. 5) and to the discovery of industrial archaeology artefacts. The route starts from Parco dei Campacci (377 m. amsl): this park, adjacent to the inhabited centre of Marmore, stretches along the cliff of the waterfall, on the right of river Velino (la Cava- Curiana-Clementina), at the foot of Mount Mazzelvetta (641 m. amsl), up to the waterfall, where it forms a wide natural terrace on the Nera River Park. Here, among big holm oaks and plane trees, there are the lawns of the old plateau that once belonged to the Castle of Collestatte; here you can find a rest point with the waterfall visitor center, a bar, a refreshment stand, several trails and areas dedicated to sport and leisure activities, a large car park and a camping owned by the City of Terni. At the foot of the mount, a suggestive artificial pond, obtained from the former moat of Collestatte and realized by the former Terni Company in 1889, is today used by Tyssenkrupp for the feeding of the steelworks' moving channel. From the Campacci the trail descends along the slopes of Mount Voto, into the thick wood of holm oaks, until the Valnerina nearby the remains of the Cocchi Mill. From here it skirts the Canaletto dei Cocchi (an old adduction channel of the mill's grinding wheel, still functioning for irrigation) until the remains of the abandoned conduit of Spoleto's former hydroelectric plant. From here the trail crosses river Nera on an iron bridge and arrives to Piazzale Giuseppe Vasi (Italian engraver 1710-1782), where the itinerary ends.
