Abstract: The natural environment and the mythology of certain areas are in some cases fascinating features and a pole of attraction. These areas are often enhanced through specific and predetermined nature trails. The area of north-east Oiti Mountain is a typical example, being traversed by the nature trail of Hercules (Hercules’ Trail). The purpose of the present research is to highlight the natural environment (flora, fauna), landscape, geology, geomorphology and mythology, of this area, and to propose improvements on the management of the trail (construction maintenance, cleaning, security, etc.).
