DIRECTIONS
  • Meet at Bar Pepe
  • Walk away from the roundabout 
  • After 90m there is a track on your left, walk along this track
  • After 1km (0.6miles) there is a cave in front of you, a path to the left and one to the right. Take the path on the left. The one on your right is where you will come down
  • After 450m there is a track on your left - ignore this and keep walking
  • After another 450m take the track on the right.
  • After 650m the track splits. You will be coming back to this point to go down. But continue straight on to get to the end to see the view over Oria. Along the way, you will see the Helipad and balsa (water collection point) for the fire services.
  • When ready, go back to where the track split, and go left. 
  • Follow it to the bottom. Near the bottom on your left is an area that the emergency crew fill their fire trucks from. 
  • Turn left at the bottom, and you will eventually come out at the road where Pepes is located.
