From the four-way intersection, you follow the downward tarmac road towards Montecchio until the rest area of Elce Bello, from which you take a downward silvopastoral road which, always keeping to the left, leads you to the tarmac road that connects Motecchio and Civitelle del Lago at the agritourism Poggio della Volara. Crossing the tarmac road and taking the unsurfaced road in front of you, leaving the agritourism on the left, you arrive at an intersection, at 207 meters of altitude, with the unsurfaced road that connects Baschi to Montecchio, in an elevated and panoramic position on the badlands, which are characteristic of the zone. Following on the left the unsurfaced downward road, you pass through two U-turns and arrive at the valley bottom nearby a small bridge at 182 meters of altitude, from which you take another field road on the right. The road passes behind a farmhouse and a stall and reaches a fork at the Mulinella Farmstead, from which on the right it is possible to reach the Necropolis of the glen of San Lorenzo. Instead you need to take the left and proceed uphill in the direction of Montecchio, without ever leaving the main road. Once you reach the tarmac road, cross it and take the steep little uphill road "Via dell'oro", which will shortly take you to the centre of Montecchio. From the main plaza of the town, take the road for Tenaglie and, when this turns right at an intersection with a large oak, take "Via del Rio", a steep downward road, leaving the Monastery of S. Andrea on the left, and in few minutes you will reach C. Palanca on the left.
