From the four-way intersection between the SP Montecchio-Todi and the SP for Civitella take the upward silvopastoral road that reaches the saddle between Mount Castellaro and Mount Alsicci after passing near the ruins of La Rocca (844 m. amsl). The road descends, moves around Mount Alsicci to the east and meets another trail which you follow on the right; after a brief climb you will reach the driving road connecting Montecchio to Melezzole. Continue downhill on the left, pass the cemetery of Melezzole and reach the tarmac road near the entrance of the historic centre of Melezzole. Follow this road on the right and at an intersection take a steep unsurfaced uphill road on the right (there are indications for the Church of San Vitale in Villamurellis) which rises, with a few bends, halfway up the slope of Mount Croce di Serra towards the south; keeping to the right at the first fork, you reach the ample grassy saddle of Piano Puosi, in locality Posta del Prete, at the foot of Mount Rotondo.
