Description

Hiking Trail no. 716 serves as a connection with the Sentiero Italia departing from the Nebrodi and climbing the slopes of Mount Etna after getting past Randazzo (where an overnight stay is available). The trail’s official starting point is located shortly South of Rocca di Mandorla, where the State Forestry Property border is. This cannot be trespassed by motor vehicles. From there, a 2500 metres route gaining an altitude of 230 m reaches the Pista Altomontana. The alternative trail no. 716Aallows passing from Grotta del Burò through Case Giusa, a structure providing the possibility of an overnight stay, and observing several “mannere” (sheep pens) and “pagghiari ‘npetra” (rock shacks), all made of dry lava stone walls.
