The trail follows the paved road toward San Gottardo, up to the parking lot. From here, excursionists can continue on foot among the hamlet houses up to path n. 550 on the left and climbing up, for a short distance, to the hamlet known as "Posa dei Morti”, with a small church and a cross on a stand, beneath the stone. The trail climbs up through the pastures. The first along the way is Alpe Selletta, then following are Van and Versch. After a short distance is the deviation for path number 549, leading to the neighbouring Alpi Pianello. Further up, the trail narrows, passing next to Alpine refuges and a small chapel, then finally reaching Bocchetta di Campello. Trail 548 forms a ring returning to the hamlet of San Gottardo.
