Cavatappi aka corkscrew is a demanding one, filled with steep rocky dusty turns from top to bottom. The start is quite mellow and flowy just above the Madonna della Guardia church, the finish is crossing a tiny bridge that spits you on the road that leads you to Calice town. If really wet is a nightmare, if too dry it's a nighmare too...if in the right conditions it's a really good track you won't forget. Whatch out for stones and steeep sections. have fun.

Access Info

 Hi guys, just wondering whether this trail is a "blue line". Upper section is smooth however lower section is rather steep and sometimes gnarly. Beginners will not make it and have to walk quite a lot. My opinion (and suggestion) same as Kill Bill 1
See you on the trails Smile

 You're right, it was an error.
