The Angel’s Trail
This trail begins as you leave the Castellammare di Stabia and start the ascent to Quisisana, continuing in the direction of Fontana del Re, in the Quisisana woods. It continues along a small pedestrian road, through a crossroads and over a bridge that leads to Guglia Castellano; take the uphill trail that begins a small distance further down the road.
Continue uphill until you reach the Pizzo delle Monache climbing site, and meet the road that links Quisisana with Faito. Travelling further uphill, the trail becomes less clear due to thick vegetation, and passes by the Acqua dei Porci spring, before reaching the crest of Monte Faito at a height of 1110 m.
Continue along the crest and, before reaching the path uphill to Santuario di S. Michele, follow the clear road downhill along the aqueduct as far as Via Nuova Monte Faito.
When you come to a bend a little further along, leave the road and head towards the rocky open space used as a car park and departure point for Il Molare.
Take the trail that initially leads downhill, passing by the Scorchie spring, and then begins to lead gradually uphill, where it meets the CAI trail 300 via Acqua Santa. At the crossroads on trail 300 between Molare and Conocchia, the Cammino dell’Angelo departs from the Alta Via [the High Trail] and leads towards the base of M. S. Michele (Molare), the highest peak of the Lattari Mountains.
From the small plateau at the base of the Southern slope of the Molare, a small, challenging trail leads to the peak.
