This tour starts by the village of Santa Brigida, it is a shorter alternative to the tour of Burraie. The first stretch is paved and very steep, take it easy if you don’t want to spend here the most of your energies. The route go up among chestnut trees until the ruins of Pesciulle, then it rapidly runs down (path 3) until meeting the white route signed red and white n° 6. Now the route climbs constantly, only sometimes too steep to stay on the bike, until the point called Croce Aceraia. From here the route becomes easier and runs along the crest, immerged in a wonderful landscape with an exciting view. After approached the point Passo Aceraia the route follows the 00 path, climbing the hill and then going down until the ruins of old kiln of Casa Tagliaferro.

From here, we get the path 3 on the left, rapidly plunging in the darkish Valle dell’Infernaccio (valley of Bad Hell): despite its name the path is not very steep, mostly bikeable, and runs down in a magnificent forest, amazing place on Autumn.

Approaching again the ruins of Pesciulle we go down once more along the path 3 and, at the main route (6), we turn right and follows the easy route until the first houses of Santa Brigida. Medium.
