Pian delle Noci translates as Plain of Nuts. The Pian delle Noci is a small clearing at the top of the route. A doubletrack runs up and down to the clearing.
The trail begins at the intersection of Campo dei Fiori Sentiero 10a
and Sentiero Monte Morto
. From this intersection, the descent on Campo dei Fiori Sentiero 10a
into Orino is steep, difficult, and often filled with leaf litter and other debris; so this trail through Pian delle Noci offers a slightly easier alternative to reach Ornio. There is still a steep descent into Orino after Pian delle Noci, but it is not as technical as the one on Campo dei Fiori Sentiero 10a
