The trail's point of departure is by the roadside shrine consecrated to St Anthony, at the end of the road coming from the town of Faedo (via Giarin). In its first stretch, it crosses a flatland wood of hornbeams, ash trees, downy oaks, with a characteristic undergrowth including butcher's broom, wild service tree, and moro mato, a plant coming from Eastern Asia. Turn left at the crossroads and walk slightly uphill through the bright wood, where some Judas trees (legend has it that Judas hung himself on one of those) can be observed. At the end of the rise, the path crosses a remarkably thicker and less bright woodland, where the presence of the first chestnut trees reveals the change in exposure (now facing north-west). Among the grasses on the path border, it is easy to spot a very interesting plant: Epimedium alpinum, considered a glacial relict, and among the most microthermal vegetation of Colli Euganei; the surrounding undergrowth includes eagle ferns. The trail continues on level ground; chestnut trees are more and more numerous, and gradually replace the mixed wood. Then the path goes up again, and a bright, mixed wood reappears. After the short rise, pass a fence on the right and walk on on level ground; on the left, sedimentary rock outcrops (scaglia rossa limestone) are visible.
