About
The enchanting Ferriere Valley is hidden in the mountains of Scala in Amalfi. You can take a half-day trek through the lush nature reserve, which will take you past spectacular waterfalls, lemon groves, rare prehistoric botanical relics and fossilized moss walls. This easy-to-moderate hike also traverses through the historical Valley of Mills, where you can explore ancient water mills and ironworks, and learn about the history of producing Amalfi paper. Uncover more about the area on a guided hiking tour, which often includes a stop at Ravello Coast. The valley can be cool so remember to wear a jacket and a good pair of trekking shoes. – Tripadvisor

It is not worth to go. No point.
Do not waste your time and your Money.
We had to pay 2 x 5 EURO for nothing. There was no water. It is not acceptable that you have to pay entry tickets if the waterfall is dry.

The route is suitable for people in good physical shape, it will take the whole day in time. be sure to wear comfortable shoes, in some places it is not so easy to climb. Be sure to stock up on water. When you go up, you will see many beautiful views.

A beautiful hike. I followed the official route, starting in Pontone. Surrounded by the majestic cliffs it was gorgeous. For most of the walk I was the only person on the trail (8am)
Be warned when heading up to the waterfalls there are loads of biting insects (like horse flies). No stopping for selfies just had to keep moving and swatting.
Also the last waterfall is fenced off and is only open between 10-3. You probably have to pay but I don't know how much.
If you follow the circular walk that drops you further down the valley you will be walking back up 400m worth of stairs back to Pontone - it'sa workout! Next time I'd do the route in reverse.
Having said that the hike was beautiful and a welcome break from sightseeing!

Beautiful hike. We started from Pogerola and ended in Scala. Some parts were hard, but overall the hike is quite relaxed.

A hike through the Valley with incredible woods, natural waterfalls. Unbelievable nature and completely different site of the Amalfi Coast. Take water with you and enjoy nature

The walk was really great, it only tooks us an hour to get there, but we only stopped to take a sip of water. The views were great, it felt like a jungle. The only problem was when we go to the falls, they were closed, but the people who looked after the place, let us in for a few minutes and gave us a small tour.

Very difficult and we are both in great shape. It was miserable.. A few hundred steps and no shade or paths in sight only heat and concrete steps… no signs or directions just kept going and going… after an hour of powering through still no signs of the falls.. saw lemon 🍋 trees and heard water.. be well prepared with lots of water, sun hats and bug spray

I started exploring couple of years ago when it was a hidden and wild treasures and was really risky to even kill yourself so was quiet. Now it is a total different story. Way easier to walk, restaurants along the way. At a certain point, if you want to see the end point which is a spectacular waterfall, you have to pay 5 euros. At my time, it was forbidden to go but I did and was really dangerous.

My favorite path is to start from the Amalfi city back and you walk through the houses and cultivation. If you are in the right time of the year, you can also have free fruits from the trees on the road.

They are several waterfalls that create natural pools of dolce water that you can even drink but the water is really cold so make sure that you can dry under the sun or change your clothing.

A great way to explore the beautiful hills of Amalfi. We took the opportunity to do this walk when the weather was overcast. If it’s a hot day probably best to go early!
You walk through the town of Amalfi and follow the signs for the walk as you take on the steep steps.
Half an hour into the walk you begin to enter the forest part of the walk.
It probably took us 2 hours to get to the Reserve Park. Definitely worth the 5 euro entry to explore the waterfalls and go swimming!
We then walked to the village of Pontone where we had a well deserved beer and pizza overlooking Amalfi. From Pontone it’s a much easier walk down the steps back to Amalfi.

Wear a pair of trainers and take your swimming gear!
