📣Trail of the Week: Trail #507
CTT takes you on the trails.
Trail N. 507 is one of 2 vertical trails connecting Vernazza to AV5T. It is the shorter and steeper of the two. The trailhead is about 300 meters from the main street in Vernazza, off of Trail SVA in the direction of Corniglia. The trail starts up stairs, passing through prickly pears and mediterranean scrub with a view over the village of Vernazza. The single track alternates from dirt path to irregular steps as it continues up steeply, with many exposed areas, and with views of the sea below. After 700 meters the trail passes through cultivated vineyards, flattens and turns right on a dirt road. The next kilometer is relatively flat through agricultural land to Sella di Comeneco, where the trail crosses the provincial road and then continues on singletrack to the hamlet of San Bernardino. The trail markings on parts of this section are barely visible. In San Bernardino there is a small bar for refreshments and a water fountain near the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Grace. From the church square there is a stunning view of Corniglia.
