The trail starts behind the old "Prese del Colonnello house" and smoothly runs into the woods down to Selvaggio Rio. A lot of turns, some small rocky steps. Just the end is a bit more tricky with short steep sections and rock slabs.

Il sentiero inizia dietro le vecchie case diroccate di Prese Colonnello, e senza rischi di errori scende fino alla frazione di Selvaggio Rio. Si tratta di un vecchio sentiero ripristinato a fine Aprile 2019. Molto bello, senza difficoltà eccessive, affronta diversi tornanti molto ben raccordati, alcuni steps ed un'uscita con un paio di brevi drittoni ed una placca (aggirabile)
