The departure point is from the parking lot of the Ponte di Sant’Antonio (Sant’Antonio Bridge). You continue straight up among the houses of the village, leaving on the right the indication of the nature trail for the Caves of Sant’Eustachio.
Continue straight along a short dirt road that immediately joins the asphalt road above which you will walk following the clear indications of the Via Lauretana towards Rome, which are added to the frequent white-red signs of the CAI.
You then follow the main road, which from asphalted becomes a white road up to a sharp right turn where the signposted path deviates to the left, clearly taking the “Fosso del Cerreto”.
Frequent red-white signs will accompany you throughout the valley making you discover a waterspring called “Acqua d’oro”, after which, continuing along the valley floor between short climbs and stretches in the plain, you will discover the final stretch of the valley and, with a last steep climb, you will reach the church-refuge of the Madonna del Monte, also known as Madonna of the Snow.
The return can take place backwards along the same path; any circular route through paths 206/A or 206 will require a fair lengthening of the route to return to the car.
