Milioso state-owned equipped area
Continuing along the dirt road inside the state property that first brought us to Foleo, between tall and columnar chestnut and oak trees, after about 4 km take the road on the right and continue along the road that is slightly uphill. You will pass characteristic thick pine groves alternating with forest plots of chestnut and downy oaks and you will reach the watershed crest of the Central Peloritani Mountains, where the pipeline line passes.
Continue along the road that winds to the left, almost on the same level curve, and after about two kilometers, still in a densely wooded state area, you will reach the equipped area of Milioso, the destination of our journey. Located on a floor also in a panoramic position under very tall Mediterranean pines of old plant, we can spend a day in contact with nature using the various accommodation facilities composed of wooden benches and tables, fireplaces, fountains and a rustic "haystack-like" accommodation of very impressive circular shape.
This structure throughout the summer is used by scout groups on a trip or intent on attending hiking camps.
The coverage with local frascame and the width of the "haystack" allows it to accommodate up to thirty or more children who can spend the night in their sleeping bags.

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.
