Alta Via Dei Monti Liguri: Creto to Passo della Forcella Map

Passing through the area of Scoffera, you will walk along an ancient salt road that used to connect Genoa to the Po Valley. Along the way, you will come across Val Noci and Lake Noci with views of the spectacular Alpesisa and Candelozzo Mountains in the background. You will pass a series of very impressive mountains on this stretch. From Mt. Lavagnola, continue in the direction of Mt. Antola, passing through the lush Regional Natural Park of Antola. You will then come across Mt. Caucasus, and then further east, you will see the unusual amphitheater shape of Mt. Ramaceto, before finishing up at Passo della Forcella, where you can diverge off the main route to lodge in the village of Acero. Sources
