The point of departure is 100 meters from the Geopaleontological Museum of Cava Bomba, on the left of the road leading to Cinto Euganeo.  

The path goes up the south-facing, limestone slope of Mt. Cinto. After a small stone house it runs along a terraced vineyard surrounded by olive trees, then uphill through a small locust wood, and on the forest road that crosses a thermophile oak wood rich in downy oaks, manna ashes, tree heath, cistus, butcher's-broom and wild asparagus. After a fenced uphill bend, the trail leads to a flat area and joins the old dirt road once used by rhyolite quarrymen; there, some "masagne" (volcanic blocks) were left to serve as benches. From the flat area, keep left and follow the carriage road through the chestnut wood; after a couple of bends, the view stretches from the south-central hills - from Venda to Gemola, with its Villa Beatrice d'Este - to the farther hills of Rua, Monselice and Baone.
