Description
This walk is quite easy and it is perfect for discovering the fauna and flora of this region.
To find the starting point of this walk, you must reach the crossroads of the main road (on the left the road goes towards Figari and on the right the road goes towards Porto-Vecchio) and walk towards Proxi. Then you must take the paved path.
When you will leave Sotta behind you, the path begins to descend gently until it reaches a small river that you can cross thanks to a metal bridge. Turn left and continue walking through the Corsican scrub. When you reach a clearing on your left, you will see the ruins of an old mill, which bear witness to the agricultural past of this region. Take the path on your right, which is flanked by pine trees. At the end of this path, you must take the wide track which starts on your right.
When you will reach a second clearing, you must turn right to follow the path which winds through the undergrowth until you reach the metal bridge. Continue walking to return to the starting point.
