I took one of the dirt roads to the top of the nearby hill (constructed no doubt for those who have secluded homes in the area) and from my vantage point, I watched as several trekkers made their way up one of the shepherd's paths. These trails snake over the hills, creating one long and intricate necklace of little villages. Today's CAI, or Italian Alpine club, have identified and labelled many paths that trekkers and hikers use for sport. However, these paths which were at one time little known, except to the villagers and shepherds who used them, were useful as escape routes.
