The route now develops at an altitude at the base of the coastal Monte Acquanera-Monte Cavaglia-Monte Palino, with ups and downs that lead first to Alpe Cavaglia and finally descend to the former ski area of Piazzo Cavalli. Reached Piazzo Cavalli it is possible to descend quickly to Caspoggio by ski slopes and then by public transport again the Torre Santa Maria.
