An interesting alternative, recommended in the winter, leaves from the Muraglione Pass and follows the trail along the main ridge (CAI 00) through the Fiera dei Poggi, an upland where a cattle market was once held among migrating shepherds and breeders who lived in these mountains.
Leave the ridgeway to head down into the Acquacheta valley reaching Romiti, an abandoned village that lies in a striking basin among the mountains. In the Middle Ages, the village was a place for retreats, reliant on the San Godenzo Monastery.
Hikers can find the falls behind the village. Dante described it thus:
As that river, that springs
first from Monte Veso to the east,
on the left slope of the Apennine,
and is called Acquacheta above, before
it sinks valleyward into its low bed,
and at Forli no longer has that name,
reverberates there near San Benedetto
falling from the Alpe with a single leap
fed perhaps by a thousand torrents
Dante, Inferno, XVI, 94-105
