Trail n.1: "the ancient passage"
Starting point: It is possible to enter both in the Lower Outlook and in the Upper Outlook
Length: 900 metres
Difficulty: high
Travel time: 40 minutes uphill, 25 downhill
Difference in height: 150 metres
Peculiarity:

We advise against the visit to people who suffers of breathing and cardiac diseases and who suffers of hypertension and/or hypotension. The route is very interesting for the naturalistic aspects. It can be go through (and so take) in the two direction: from the Lower Outlook to the Upper Outlook and viceversa.

The trail n.1 is one of the historical routes of the Falls. Until some years ago it has been
used by the residents to reach Marmore town because it links the Lower with the Upper
Outlook (the only one among the 5 routes of the area). Its realization has been made by the
building of the Paolino canal in the second half of 1700.

Interesting is above all the naturalistic aspects ( the lush vegetation and hidden caves),
while the poor view of the Falls because it is far from the water. Except a fantastic point:
the lover’s balcony. A little terrace in the heart of the Falls that is in the middle of the route
and reachable after crossing the homonymous tunnel that presents a natural ground, even if
some points have stairs. The trail n.1 is the most difficult in relation to the others.

Starting from the didactical Centre of the botanical garden you will arrive to a tree-lined
road where the route begins. After 5 minutes there is a space with benches. Continue between
the rocks until reaching (after about 20 minutes) a fork: on the left you go to the tunnel and
to the Lover’s Balcony, on the right arrive to the Upper Outlook. After 5 minutes you find
a stopping area with wooden tables; other 5 minutes and again the area with benches. From
here in 10 minutes you reach the Upper Outlook and so la Specola, a very beautiful building
built by the Pope Pius VI in 1786 and here you can see a very impressive and fascinating
sight of the first drop of the Falls.
