Descending easily down a cobbled muletrack, it meets trail 535 from Campiglia, with wich shares a stretch of about 250 meters on a gentle slope through vineyards. At about 259 meters a.s.l. the trails divide, and trail 536 keeps climbing down a stairway toward the hamlet of Monesteroli.

The descent is extremely steep (although well-kept), with some 100% grade spots, this makes the path astonishingly panoramic, but those who suffer from vertigo are advised against this hike. Before arriving at Monesteroli, a tabernacle dedicated to Saint Pantaleon can be spotted along the trail. From the hamlet the descent to the sea is rugged and uneven due to landslides.

Points of Interest:

  • Localities crossed: Monesteroli
  • Architectural, historical and artistic Beauties: Monesteroli stairway called "Scala Grande"
