Look for an accommodation close to this path!
The path "Carmelo e Riccardo" is located inside the Bove Valley; it winds inside the lava flow of 1992 that went as far as Zafferana Etnea. It is possible to divide the pathway into three distinctive segments: the descent into the valley, the track through the lava flow and the reascent from the valley. The descent can be started from different points. In our case we decided to go through the path “Schiena dell’asino” to reach the point from which we start the descent, but it would also have been possible to use the cable car and descend through the "Canalone della Montagnola", which has yet to be tracked. From the starting point Schiena dell’asino), 2 hours to travel through the valley, 30mins to reascend along the beech forest and 30mins to redescend the Acqua Rocca path.
Important: The starting point of the path DOES NOT COINCIDE with the arrival point; in order to go around you need to undertake this pathway as a group and leave one car at the arrival point, then journey to the starting point with the other car/s. The distance between starting point and arrival point is almost 8km so organisation is very important.
