Monte Scuro represents an area of the Park of particular historical and naturalistic charm. In fact, in this place the Sosio river is born, which crossing the Sican territory for over 60 km, reaches the Mediterranean Sea, where it flows between the towns of Ribera and Sciacca. Another peculiarity is its wood, one of the oldest in the area, full of oaks, holm oaks and downy oaks, which between the end of the 1800s and the beginning of the 1900s was the site of a flourishing presence of charcoal burners and mule tracks that are still partly passable today. This excursion, mainly naturalistic and very panoramic, develops over a difference in altitude of about 700 meters, reaching an altitude of 1,200 meters above sea level. Starting from the Traina farm and going up Monte Indisi, a border area between the territory of Prizzi and that of Palazzo Adriano, you can enjoy the wonderful panorama of the Sosio Valley Reserve and a good part of the Sicani Mountains, until you see Rocca Busambra ( Ficuzza), the villages of Giuliana and Chiusa Sclafani, Monte Carcaci, Monte Cammarata.
Once near the source of the Sosio river, our staff will welcome us with a tasty picnic based on typical local products. Here, in the warmer months, it is possible to cool off with a regenerating bath in the river water, also visiting the tunnels dug into the rock to intercept the spring waters.
We continue the walk entering the wood of Monte Scuro, retracing an ancient mule track already used by charcoal burners, enjoying the exciting panorama that opens onto the dense forest, to then reach a wide valley of pastures and land sown with cereals.
The walk ends with the arrival at the Company, where it will be possible to enjoy a well-deserved break.
