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 State. You go through several hairpin bends thickly with trees, in the 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 summer, groups of scouts from all the provinces of the island alternate in training camps-schools, 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 website of the Regional Forestry Department of Sicily (continuously 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.
