Continue along the path that leads to Case Passo Canale up to intercept the dirt road Marcato di Case La Pazza. After a short distance you reach a wooden bridge on Vallone Faguara.
Descend towards the plateau of Pizzo Canna, and by a slight ups and downs go along Contrada Frattasella with its oak trees, the namesake watering hole and two “marcati”. Continuing along the path at the foot of Monte Ferro is reached where Piano Pomo, including beech, maple and oak trees you can admire the Giant Hollies, unique in the world, taller than 15 meters.
