Overview

This is a rustic path winding up and above the sea with great views as you continue on towards Portofino and then descend back to Santa Margherita. Shade and cool breezes can make this a good option on a warm day, plus you can also enjoy a swim on either end to cool down!

Description

Miss the last ferry from San Fruttuoso back to your hotel or looking for another great run to extend the day? This is it! This point-to-point run quickly ascends up from San Fruttuoso back up under the cover of the forest before peaking out high above to offer sweeping views of the sea. The trail is mostly rugged singletrack for the first 2-3 miles until you start to reach the edges of Santa Margherita, where it shifts to improved surfaces and then paved paths. Your run ends in Santa Margarita where you can enjoy a nice swim post-run.

Flora & Fauna

Blackberry bushes, walnut flowers, and mint can be found. Listen for the call of finches.

You'll pass by many vineyards as you descend back into town.
