The itineraries mainly consist of ancient paved trails or dirt roads used to reach places of religious worship (S.Fruttuoso, S.Nicolò, La Cervara), to link the various towns, and reach the places of rural work (olive groves, woodlands and charcoal piles, maquis, and pastures).
The main itinerary of the network is represented by the main route Portofino Vetta - Portofino mare, crossing the whole promontory from north-west to south-east.
