“An ascent from Corniglia to Trail AV5T, the "high trail" of the Cinque Terre.”
— Nicola Bordoni
Watch out for rocks and roots as you get higher up.
The trailhead intersects with Trail SVA (592)
behind the church of San Pietro in Corniglia. The trail climbs gently through vineyards and gardens, then steepens as it passes through olive groves and then forest. After the intersection with Trail N. 586
(to Volastra) the trail continues up steeply in the forest, joins the road for a brief segment, then continues up through the forest until the intersection with Trail AV5T
Flora & Fauna
Upon leaving Corniglia you will pass grapevines and olive trees, and then higher up along the trail you will enter a forest of holm oak and pines,
