717A / Sentiero 717A – 1° Bretella collegamento sentieri 717-718
Just like the following Hiking Trails nos. 718 and 719, these trails are specifically for those approaching the Volcano from the large municipal area of Randazzo, where all the mentioned trails unfold. A Hiking Base Point, Case Caldarera is located at an altitude of 1,004 m, but those approaching it with motor vehicles may get up to the bar marking the border of the State Property at 1150 m. Hence the route consists of a small track of forest use and, in about one and a half hour, allows reaching the Casermetta di M. Spagnolo (currently a dilapidated building) at 1437 m, subsequently to unfold towards other targets. Three-quarters through the route, a detour to the left leads to Saletti Lodge (1373 m a.s.l.), which provides hikers with an emergency shelter.
