This is a simple and short route between Caramanico Terme and the bridge of Caramanico that runs along the bottom of the Orfento Valley. The first stretch of the trail skirts round the Casa del Lupo Visitor Centre, and the Wildlife Area of the European Otter; it soon reaches a spectacular panoramic ledge from which the trail continues downhill on steep steps carved into the rock (be careful if they are wet) at the end of which, near a narrow bend, a wide cavity opens under the rock that once housed the hermitage of S. Cataldo.
