A Trail for Everyone with CAI

We would like to highlight initiatives dedicated to disability with the “A Trail for Everyone” project, within which the CAI (Italian Alpine Club) of La Spezia, in collaboration with the Cinque Terre National Park, has identified four trails entirely accessible to people with disabilities, both physical and mental, all starting from the Telegrafo Pass.

The project aims to bring people with disabilities onto the trails, using a special single-wheel wheelchair called Joelette, which will be provided by the CAI section of La Spezia, along with the establishment of welcoming points for people with disabilities near the trails.

The identified trails are as follows:

  • Telegrafo Pass to Campiglia: Starting from the Telegrafo Pass, you first follow the AV5T trail, passing through Sant’ Antonio, and then continue on the AV5T. Just beyond station 14 of the outdoor gym, you take the short connecting trail to the dirt road and continue on the white road to Campiglia. The return can be made using the same dirt road.
  • Telegrafo Pass to Monte Santa Croce: You follow the asphalt road towards Bramapane, and at the Bramapane Junction, you pass through the rock and continue on the dirt road to the La Croce saddle.
  • Telegrafo Pass to Madonna di Montenero Sanctuary: You must follow trail 530 starting from the Telegrafo Pass the sharp bend at an altitude of 350 m. From there, a trail with little significant elevation change leads to the Sanctuary. Return by the same route.
  • Telegrafo Pass to Volastra: The path of the sanctuaries from the Telegrafo Pass to Volastra.

All the information can be found on the website of the Cinque Terre National Park in the specific section dedicated to trails and outdoor activities at www.parconazionale5terre.it.
