From the Ruffinati bridge over the Aveto river, turn left and take the path that starts at the edge of the open space and runs parallel to the river. The trail is flat slightly uphill, after about thirty minutes you reach the collecting site.

The research is carried out along the natural landslide that starts from the riverbed, up to a height of about fifty meters.
