A few meters beyond the refuge, you'll find a narrow stone street Monte Fontane hiking trail: stone street, with a few mountain bike signs. At the end of this street there's a widening Monte Fontane hiking trail: a widening: you can go to the right , on a path dug in the cold magma, or you can go straight on into the wood and then rise among the trees.

The ascent through the righe path is easier Monte Fontane hiking trail: the righe path is easier, but the path is so wide that even off-roads can drive on it, (probably not legally...) in order to bring lazy tourists on top of the trail.

You'll also find a ruined house almost covered by magma Monte Fontane hiking trail: ruined house almost covered by magma; if you walk beyond it, you'll enter inside the Bove Valley.
