Nature Reserves, Parks & Gardens
The Nebrodi mountains span 85,687 hectares, of these 50,000 hectares are woods. There are a huge variety of trees and animals including the semi-wild San Fratellano horses, sheep, black Nebrodi pigs and cattle. Reaching from the Peloritani to the Madonie, the Nebrodi also contain 21 towns, however it is largely unpopulated compared to the Madonie. Highest point is Mount Soro (1,847 metres).
The area is usually misty and wet thanks to the high altitude. Those who set out to explore the trails on foot, bike or horseback will love the options here but should be aware that rain does make some of the sections unpleasant and even disorienting - so take care (or hire a guide).
If you're heading through the Nebrodi it's common to see wild pig. Make sure you keep an eye out for the unique horse breed of San Fratello, particularly in the lower stretches.
