Acquarosa state-owned equipped area
Starting from Barcelona, head towards Castroreale and, after about 7 Km., Continue towards Marasà along the SP Castroreale-Mandanici, of which only the first section is asphalted, until you reach a large sign indicating the start of the Forestry Property. You go through several hairpin bends thickly with trees, in a state-owned area and after less than 1 km you arrive at the equipped area. This consists of several chestnut wood tables and benches, two multiple fire points, a wooden shelter, all located under chestnut and pine trees. Several fountains with spring water are precious water points for the many visitors and day-trippers who frequent this area. In the summer, groups of scouts from all the provinces of the island alternate in training camps, important experiences that allow young people to have direct contact with nature and knowledge of the elements that compose it.

Note on Sources
The information on the equipped state-owned areas has as its main source the Internet site of the Regional Forestry Department of Sicily (constantly updated) to which is added a very interesting brochure entitled "The State Equipped Areas in Sicily" of the same department published in 1999 with the Editorial Coordination of the 8th Group - Promotion, Development and Research, editors Agostino Gatto and Valeria Restuccia. Further information was obtained from direct access to the areas and from interviews with experts and operators in the sector.
