The walk starts with a climb on an asphalted road to the village "Caranna", the road is closed for heavy traffic, but you might have a car come by from time to time, so please be careful.
After reaching the town, it takes a small road out the town and through a valley with various agriculture after which you'll reach an huge stone quarry that is no longer in use. The trail will bring you to a point where you have a look look into the quarry, but please be careful as there is no fence.
After the quarry, you'll come to the ridge of the hill and have a view over the valley and the sea. At this point, you'll see the tower on your right hand side, this is Monte Pizzuto.
The descent to the valley goes over an old road that has deteriorated so much that it's now not more then a hiking trail.
Once you reach the foot of the hill, you'll be on the main road for 600 meters so please careful with traffic. Soon you'll go deeper in the country side and are less likely to see much traffic. The trail leads you along many olive and other trees, while avoiding houses (and dogs) as much as possible.
Near the end of the hike, you'll need to walk up a little bit to make it back to the starting point.
The starting point of the this hike is very close to the starting point of "Monte Le Fergole and Valley (near Ostuni)" that is also published on this website. If you want you can combine the 2 walks making it a 31km figure 8.
