Following the main track through the deep wood, where you often meet century-old beeches, you reach finally a steep mule path and after about 30 minutes you arrive at the wide valley called Valico dell'Orso, your destination: the landscape is astounding, you can see the whole val Fondillo, monte Amaro, monte Capraro, Forca Resuni, monte Petroso and the upper Valle di Canneto. From this observation point another itinerary leads over the mountain pass and to Civitella Alfedena. But you can leave that to another occasion and return down the same way you came, just one and a half hour of easy, downhill walking.
