On foot         
  • Departure: Sorgenti del fiume Verde
  • Arrival: Monastero di San Martino in Valle
  • Duration: about 40 minutes
  • Difficulty Level: T - Tourist (level)
  • Length: 1.600 km

The route starts from the parking area in front of the river Verde springs to Fara San Martino. Take the wide dirt road which through some bends leads to the opening of the Gole (gorges) of San Martino. The environment is rugged and rocky and it is interesting to see how, due to the karstic nature of the ground, there is no surface water on the valley bottom. The narrow opening which characterises the gorges of San Martino is of great charm and appeal, both for its dimensions and for its symbolic value as the "gateway" to one of the most majestic valleys of the Majella.
