Initially, the trail follows along an old track that at some points shows the old and still intact cobblestones, gently rising in altitude along the western and southern slopes. The forest in this first section populated by chestnut trees with concentrations of robinia trees. At the end of the track, the trail quickly begins to climb towards the left, bypasses some outcrops of trachyte and leads to the southern slope, featuring continuous rocky spurs. At an intersection, the trail on the right leads downhill to the ancient church of Sant'Antonio Abate, annexed to a Benedictine monastery in the year 1200. Leaving the old road, the trail continues to climb along the ancient road that the inhabitants of Teolo used to travel to the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Monte. At a further intersection you have two possibilities: the left-hand path will take you back quickly to the beginning of the route, and on the right you descend on Via San Giorgio, halfway between the start of the path and the church of Rovolon. At the same intersection, you can also take the detour that leads you to the Rovolon - Sella Fiorine trail.
