From Ripe to Salinello Gorges

You can reach the village of Ripe (611m) from the junction at km 17.300 of SS road 81, between the two junctions leading to Civitella del Tronto used if you come from Teramo and the junction (in loc. Villa Lempa) used if you come from Ascoli Piceno. After parking the car next to the church, climb for a few meters along an asphalt road, then turn left and take a private road closed to the traffic which immediately becomes a dirt road, and go ahead along a slight downhill trail towards Salinello Gorges.
