Skirting Lake Cecita, the Ciclovia lands in the village of Campo San Lorenzo with its beautiful little wooden church reflected in the waters of the lake basin. Reaching the Casa Cantoniera at Km 13.6, the cycle route begins to climb through the cultivated Camigliatello Silano countryside with gradients that at times touch 13%, in a route of rare scenic beauty that alternates between green glades and dense pine forests. Having reached the crossroads of Croce di Megara, which is only 3 km from the Giants of Sila Reserve, the cycle route continues in the direction of the hamlet of Sculca (1360 m), with slight ups and downs until Km 24.7, near the historic Calabro-Lucane station of San Nicola Silano, not far from Silvana Mansio, the pleasant village of wooden chalets at 1470 m altitude. Having resumed the SP211, with gradients of around 9%, at Km 29 we reach 1565 metres, which coincides with the highest point of the Ciclovia dei Parchi, on the slopes of Monte Altare. Shortly afterwards, the long-awaited descent begins, reaching Rovale and then, after a slight uphill stretch, resuming its descent to Lorica and the magnificent Lake Arvo (1290 m).
