The hike ascends the steep crater wall in a series of long switchbacks, finally arriving at Convento Sant'Angelo around 300 meters. There's a dirt road up the external side of the crater from Quarto (to the north). A few cars were parked there and people were visiting the convent but it was otherwise locked up. Along the walk are some great views outside the crater of the sea and surroundings. Be sure to check yourself for ticks after hiking here, they were abundant even in October.
Note: I apologize for the foreshortened GPS track, the Garmin hadn't been recharged and died. The hike should be around 6 or 7 km.
