The itinerary begins at the Sanctuary of the Madonna di Loreto ai Capitelli (1769), where a convenient car park is located next to the sanctuary. Leaving the car park, turn right, go up via Capitelli and walk by the former elementary school. As the road is uphill, care must be taken in this stretch of the route. A depression on the hill is visible on the right hand side of the road. Once at the provincial road of Rameston, take it and follow it for about a hundred meters downhill (be careful when crossing it: this is a high traffic road with no sidewalk!). The next stop is at the entrance of via Caribollo at number 31. The environment here is characterized by the slopes facing south in the first section and facing east in the next section. This is due to the fact that the route winds inside a valley that originates from the hamlet of Crosara and descends towards the south-east: the name of this valley is Valle del Costolo. After running through the narrow Valle Lasta valley, the road continues slightly downhill: the characteristic high masiere (dry-stone walls) are visible on the right - some are actually hidden by vegetation, but others are quite clearly visible. Go straight on until the first group of houses in Contrà Canova. A last mild ascent leads to Contrà Caribollo Alto, which develops along the street bearing the same name. The Enel tower/station is the end of the journey and visitors can return to the starting point taking the same route back so that they have the opportunity to observe the environment of the dry-stone walls from different angles.
