Beatiful trail, the High Path of the Gods, which starting from Agerola leads to Positano, passing above the most famous Path of the Gods, through the landslide of Monte Catello.
Departure from Piazza Paolo Capasso in the hamlet of Bomerano, in Agerola. Following the directions of the CAI you reach the foot of Mount Paipo following the driveway. Follow the road which becomes a dirt road for about 700 meters and pay attention to the road on the left marked by CAI (only red color).
Here begins the path through the first stretch in the Mediterranean vegetation and then mixed deciduous forest, until you arrive to the landslide. Pay attention when crossing the large blocks of stone, fallen by the landslide dislodged from Monte Catello in 2002. We continue passing through the beautiful watershed Vallone Porto Positano, continuing through a reforestation of conifers, which unfortunately has suffered heavy damage caused by a recent fire.
Arrived at the shelter known as “forest barrack” continues in the same direction until you reach the small hamlet of Santa Maria del Castello (Vico Equense). Here you take the path that leads down to Cape Water to the junction of Montepertuso (Positano) on the road 163.
