San Rocco - Punta Chiappa trail

Hello!

We are planning to visit the area in April this year. Does anybody know if the trails are in the good condition this time of the year ( most of Cinque Terre trails are closed )?

How long approximately does it take to walk it? Is it marked?

What is the level of difficulty? Is it suitable for not very young and not very fit?

And finally which option is easier/sounds better:

- start at Camogli, hike one-way to Punte Chiappa and return by boat;

- start at San Rocco (lunch at Nonna Nina) and hike both ways, since we need to get back to the parked car.

Thanks for any advice.

1. Re: San Rocco - Punta Chiappa trail

There are over 25 different trails in the cinque Terre, of which today 7 are closed, so what you posted is actually opposite. In fact, the majority of the trails in the cinque terre are open.

The very popular and very crowded Trail 2 in the cinque Terre is closed today. By Easter, the parts between Monterosso-corniglia should be open, depending on the weather.

The trail from San Rocco to Punta Chiappa is very easy and also easy to find, and from memory much of it is hard-surface tarmac.

portofinotrek.com/trek/trail-map/21-san-rocc… says it takes 30 minutes, but that's walking fast and does not include the quite long stretch of road walking (a very quiet road) from the main road. Nor does it include a stop at the bar on the footpath a little beyond San Rocco, if it's open.

It is not so easy in the reverse direction as it is uphill all the way, and nor is it easy to walk from Camogli to San Rocco, as this gains the same height only much more steeply. With unfit and not very young people, take a bus to the San Rocco turn, and take the boat back from Punta Chiappa www.golfoparadiso.it/php/lineablu.php…
