How to get there
It can be reached from Monterosso Almo following the state road n. 194 for Vizzini-Catania along which the directional signs of the equipped area will meet. At about 4 Km. From the aforementioned Municipality, take the road on the left always following the appropriate signs and, along another 1.000 meters of white road, which winds through the wooded complex of the same name, on the left, under tall pines, you will meet the first infrastructures of the equipped area, the destination of our journey. Continuing along this road you can arrive at an ancient mill, being renovated by the Forestry, around which other accommodation infrastructures have been arranged. The sight of this large building takes us back in time, and it is like taking a dip in the past, when you cross the threshold of this building, structured in different buildings.
The wooded complex is made up of oak and conifer species, the latter of which are about thirty years old, which are gradually giving way to the oaks typical of the area, and in particular to holm oaks and downy oaks. The only existing infrastructures in the area of the equipped area are a multiple cooking point and many tables and benches, very well integrated into the environment.

Further information was obtained from direct access to the areas and from interviews with experts and operators in the sector.
