Once reached Campocatino one climbs up to the CAI mountain hut. From there one finds the yellow-red markers along the gravel ridge almost up to the summit of Mount Vermicaio. One soon climbs down to reach a mountain pass, where one crosses a slightly uphill dirt road. Following the street one turns left and takes the steep slope leading to the Fonte di Pozzotello. From here one goes on downhill, crosses a meadow and enters in the forest again. The slope becomes steeper and wild up to the intersection with a dirt road (Passo del Diavolo).
