Starting from Alghero meeting point and begin the path along the bike path towards Fertilia, from here we will start our excursion Off – road taking one of the old roads used during the Second World War to reach various bunkers and other buildings scattered in the area (some still in good condition). Along the way you can look down on
the village Nuraghe Palmavera (which takes its name from the mountain) consists of a main tower of 8 meters tall and 10 in diameter, with 40 cabins distributed in a confused way, some of which now no longer visible. The climb is not difficult, as both slope that as background, in reality there is only a tract by foot (for the presence of rocks and gravel) where at the end you can admire the view of the promontory of Capo Caccia, the bay of Porto Conte and the cliffs of Porto Ferro and Porticciolo. After the brief stop, continue in the pine forest, to reach slightly downhill, the road that leads to the summit of Mount D’olla (436 meters) but our route turns on dirt, and gained about 250 meters above
sea level where there is a small roof terrace used by the forest; from here you can see the airport, the pond of calik, the agricultural zone, Fertilia and in the distance the bay of Alghero.

The fund is not binding and it is open to all alternating short ups and downs and the provision for more compact. Concluded the ring, it passes in the pine forest to reach the cliffs of Porto Ferro and Porticciolo, the area almost always exposed to the winds.
