A trail for walking and training, through a rich vegetation of odorous essences. The trail, located in Piana Tonda, was designed for pleasant walks accessible also to people with limited abilities. It was built using naturalistic engineering techniques and natural materials.

The path consists of a large wooden platform that crosses an area with a substrate of recent lava on which a pine forest was planted in the first half of the twentieth century. The pine forest is currently being recovered. In an area of 3 hectares visitors can enjoy all the beauty and diversity of Vesuvian landscape, in a silence broken only by the singing of the local birds.

Please be extremely careful on the trails, always check weather conditions and wear appropriate shoes.

The Park Authority has no competence for safety and so it is not responsible for any damage to people and things that may occur during the use of the Park territory.

Although fully accessible this trail offers different views and a very diverse scenery: stretches in the shade of pine trees, sun-bathed areas in the Maquis shrub-land, areas of barren pyroclastic substrate. While walking, you can enjoy the view of the western side of Mount Vesuvius.

The path, with its continuous hairpin turns and crossings, is designed in such a way as to always allow visitors to be in proximity of the local trees and vegetation, mainly of the Maquis shrub-land, so that in addition to the view they can enjoy their smell and contact.

The Terzigno pine forest trail is the ideal destination for visitors who want to know and appreciate the typical environments of Mount Vesuvius with an easy walk and in a relatively small space along a path that is fully representative of the beauty of the Park and for sports enthusiasts, who can find the ideal conditions for their workouts along the route.
