Ferriere Valley Nature Reserve (Riserva Statale Valle delle Ferriere) Tours

The area around the Amalfi Coast is often overlooked by famous towns like Amalfi and Positano, but nature lovers love hiking in the nearby Valle delle Ferriere.

The area is a nature reserve, the Riserva Statale Valle delle Ferriere, which takes its name from the old ironworks that were once there. Some ruins of the foundries can still be seen, and in the neighboring Valle dei Mulini hikers can see ruins of mills once used in Amalfi's paper-making industry. One of the most noted features of the landscape are the waterfalls – water helped run both the ironworks and paper mills.

The trails in this area are divided into two sections, the Lower Trail (Sentiero Basso) and Upper Trail (Sentiero Alto). The Lower Trail, between Amalfi and Pontone, is quite popular – many hikers start in Pontone and work their way down. That way, the hike is described as “easy” to “moderate,” requiring about four hours. To hike the Upper Trail, take a bus to Pogerola from Amalfi.

Practical Info

You can hike up to Pontone from Amalfi, of course, but just be aware that there is a flight of stairs at the beginning of the hike leading out of Amalfi. So if you'd prefer not to start your hike on steps, then catch a bus to Ravello or Scala, take an easy walk from there to Pontone, and hike back down to Amalfi.
