20115 PIANA


We like

This ancient mule track was the communication route between Ota and Piana before the existence of the road.

Cross the municipal stadium of Piana and take the path of the Muleteers, indicated by a sign.
The stadium is at the entrance of the calanques of Piana if you arrive from Ajaccio, 2 kms at the exit of the village of Piana.

Cross the stadium and take "le chemin des Muletiers" or "ancien chemin d'Ota à Piana", on your left and indicated by a sign.
The hike begins with a passage in the forest, which quickly leads to the cliffs, in the creeks. At the fork in the road, continue straight ahead, towards a dry stone wall which you will pass over. The path is well marked by cairns and well drawn, you can't go wrong.
It goes down in stairs towards the D81 and is at the level of the statue of the virgin in the rock. It is possible to come back in a loop by the road, about 20 minutes, or to go back on your steps.
