Transfer to Montalbano di Elicona and then we'll go from here, among beech and oak trees, in the heart of the natural reserve of Malabotta Woods. Finally we reach the Rocche dell Argimusco, imposing and ancient megaliths sculptured by centuries of erosion, where pre-Hellenic peoples celebrated their sacred rites.
Transfer to Piano Provenzana (1800 m. above sea level) where the trail starts. It will take us through the lava from the 2003 eruption to Mt. Nero (2049m.). From there we'll walk on the spectacular 'lava cordato' of Dammusi Pass and after we'll go down to the cave dei lamponi.
Transfer to the ancient medieval town of Novara di Sicilia and after we'll head towards Portella Mandrazzi. From here we'll continue through the paths that climb to Rocca Leone (1207 m. above sea level). The trail to the famous Rocca di Novara (1340 m.) starts here. This is one of the most suggestive peaks on the island of Sicily. In fact it's called the Matterhorn of Sicily for its dolomite-like views.
