Sinapa state-owned equipped area
The Sinapa equipped area is located within the homonymous Forest State Property, consisting mainly of Mediterranean conifers - Aloppo pines, domestic pines and cypresses - of old planting and in phase of gradual conversion with native oak species. Along the provincial road Santa Ninfa-Gibellina vecchia, pass the Rampinzeri village identifiable with the remains of the old shanty town built after the earthquake in the Belice Valley, turn right and around 800 meters you will find the entrance to the Demanio Senapa. From the gate follow the dirt road that crosses the State Property and after about 1500 meters you will reach the equipped area. Located in a flat area, you can enjoy the goodness of the environment and its silences interrupted by the chirping of certain birds or the meowing cry of the buzzard, in this area a rather common species and always looking for small reptiles or small rodents, its usual prey. Along the dirt path it is possible to make excursions on foot or by mountain bike.

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.
