The first part of this track is asphalted till it reaches the small church of Santa Croce. From here it continues onto "Via Julia Augusta", a tract of ancient roman road that still retains its original cobblestones and a few roman tombs and ruins.
The end of the Via Julia reaches the town of Albenga, and from here an asphalted uphill track turns into "Sentiero dell'Onda", or "Path of the Wave", which can be considered one of the most enjoyable trails in Liguria for its spectacular views.
Finally a short asphalted stretch leads to a typically Ligurian "mulattiera" or mule track, from which you will get back to the starting point.
