Marcita state-owned equipped area
From Castelvetrano head in the direction of the Trinità Dam, along the homonymous municipal road. After about 5 Km. Before arriving at the lake on the left you will find a special sign located near the wooded complex which is also called "Trinità".
The tree cover is made up of old Mediterranean pines and eucalyptus trees in an area of about 35 hectares, which have changed the appearance of this territory, giving rise to the "culture of the forest" in the local populations.
In this new and well-accepted environmental context, an equipped area was therefore created to allow the use of the forest, placing various infrastructures in the undergrowth such as wooden benches and tables, cooking points, a playground for children, with carousels and swings, fountains with water, a fairly large parking area, toilets and other comforts to allow hikers and nature lovers a relaxing rest in the open air. Near the equipped area there is the Forestry Detachment of Castelvetrano

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.
