At Arienzo (m 83), take the staircase leading to the village of Nocelle (m 436), where the 1834 Church of the Holy Cross rises. From Nocelle continue towards Montepertuso to arrive after a few minutes on the paved road. Walking for about 1.5 Km until you will arrive at the hamlet of Montepertuso, so called for a large hole in the rocky wall that overlooks it, visible from every place of the hamlet. In Montepertuso, in the center of the village, stands the 16th century Church of “Madonna delle Grazie”. Near the church, you have to leave the asphalt road to climb the small widening that is on the right and enter a small alley that leads to a small parking area from which the rest of the trail begins on the right. At the altitude of 364 m, you will meet the intersection with 331b. Go right to traverse the Vallone Pozzo through a challenging route, recommended only for expert hikers. The route ends at altitude of 652 m, where you will find the road leading to the nearby Church of Santa Maria del Castello, along which the 300CAI trail runs (Upper trail of the chain of Monti Lattari).[sharify]
