Instead, I continued down then back up to Monte Cereis (961 meters). The gravel road makes an interesting loop through the karst, sinkholes and trees. At the top is a grassy pasture with a heliport marked off.
I descended back the way I'd come, taking a break at Stalla Cereis, a stone house with great views of surrounding mountains and valleys. You can see Lago di Redona through the trees but I couldn't get a clear shot of it. Great ride!

the right ends at a settlement called Ferrara

It appears to be a big rock scramble with trees.
