Päev Monte Cofano looduspargis + Monte Monaco mäel (San Vito Lo Capo).
Monte Cofano looduspark
Monte Cofano on külastatavuselt teine peale Zingaro looduskaitseala. See piirneb Castelluzzo ja Custonaci vahel, ning on rabavalt kaunis oma ranniku ja selle niitude poolest. Jalutuskäik läbi looduspargi pakub võimalust hüpata ajaloos tagasi. Kõige huvitavamad säilmed on 16. sajandil ehitatud vaatetorn. Looduspark on üks ilusamaid oma kivise maastiku ja peadpööritava kõrgete kaljudega. Kaljud on väga populaarsed mägironijate seas. Samuti on piirkond ideaalne neile, kes armastavad matkamist koobastes.
Monte Monaco mägi
West Face Route:
The west face route is signposted and marked! Follow the dirt road in eastern direction ascending slightly. Stay left at a first road junction, stay on the right road at a second one. After about 100 m a trail starts where the road bends to the left. Follow this trail, it zigzags up the west slopes of Monte Monaco west face.
When the trail arrives at a huge meadow which is used as cattle land stay left it disappears. Follow a route, marked with stakes, along some rocks in east and southeast direction until the trail appears again and zigzags up to the broad north ridge of Monte Monaco. There you meet the old quarry road which is used the east face route. Follow the road to the summit, passing some old limestone quarries. Be careful there with the quarries, you easily might fall into an unexpected hole !
Follow the different paths between the quarries an pass a water reservoir up to the summit with a huge summit cross.
Monte Monaco is, due to the Mediterranean climate, a whole years hike.
Best time is early spring until early summer (February through May) and October/November.
June through September is normally too hot – you would not like hiking with 45 grade centigrade …
Bathing season starts normally June until late October.
As this hike is not longer than about 3 hours, there is plenty of time to hit the beach or to tackle the bald Pizzo di Sella (704 m), standing south of Monte Monaco:
