Through this short trail it is possible to reach the Hermitage of San Bartolomeo with approximately a half-an-hour walk. After leaving the car on the road in the Macchie di Coco locality you will start to follow the trail signposted with "S" (Spirit) on the left. Initially the trail is a dirt road, after turning to the left near an iron cross, it becomes narrower and after a few minutes it looks out onto the homonymous valley. The descent begins here, made easier with steps carved into the ground and ends after a final smooth stretch along the mountainside, near a passage in the rock from which you can access the natural balcony where, during the middle of the 13th century, the Hermitage of San Bartolomeo was built.
