San Giovanni di Gerace
Amazing waterfall trek high in the mountains overlooking Giosia Superiori. Immense views of the valley, towns and the sea await you as you make your way along the dirt road that brings you to the start of the cold, clear, sparking waters at the trail head.
From here the Levadio offers up its beauty with a series of waterfalls and bathing pools easily reached by following the well-established trail park trail that zig-zags its way up and around the waterfalls through the well shaded wooded area. Wooden and stone bridges grant access to other sections of the trail as well as pathways worn into the mountain stone.
This walk offers you the opportunity to admire the “Eellar” and Marasa’” waterfalls and further on you will reach “Schiavone”, one of the most beautiful waterfalls on the path, well shaded by the surrounding chestnut tree grove. The various Castellucci monoliths stand high and impressive. Be sure to wear your bathing suit as you will most likely wish to bath in the mineral waters as we ascend the trail to the upper picnic area. The waters throughout this region are said to be healing waters that makes one feel invigorated as well as silky smooth and clean.
Near the source “Cannavare’” there is a branch with the statue of Our Lady of Lourdes a few meters away from the cascading waters. Picnic tables and bbq pits make this a favorite family location for a day trek. A little difficult, but thrilling, you will come away from this trek wishing to go on other treks.
