Leaving Pianezzo the road continue in direction of Vellano, the first of five districts of the comunity of S. Antonio.

Little after Vellano you arrive at Carmena, seat of the Community and of the church of S. Antonio. Further on, crossing the valley of Melirolo, you join Melera and at last Carena (958 m above sea level), the aim of the trail, which is a little befor the oratorio of San Bernardino.On the way back we advice you to make a detour to Paudo, a nice village embeded on a panoramic terrace.
After Carena the path leads to the archeological zone of the antic oven and chamber of smiths (maglio) (activated at the end of the 17.th century), which is on the «trail of iron», a crossing the border theme trail (see website).
