Schiena dell’Asino

Schiena dell’Asino

On the south side of Mount Etna, going down from the area facing the refuge Sapienza, take the provincial road 92 until you reach a large area close to a fork, where you can see a bar of the Forest Service: this is the start point of the itinerary. The first part of the path twists and turns uphill through a larch pine forest, continues along an upland and ends at the edge of a ravine overlooking the majestic Valle del Bove.
