A sterrata road is caught up then that door with facility to the Plans of Melia, than is found near the pinete more of Aspromonte known: those of the Plans of Carmelia. In order to return to Gambarie it can be proceeded towards south, to cross the fiumara of the Red deer, to go up until the Strut of the Albara and then coming down until the bridge that door this same name.
