The route crosses a valuable territory with a remarkable biodiversity inside the Madonie Park and Sic areas (site of community interest), among olive groves, citrus and ash groves for manna; this is the only Sicilian valley where manna is produced.
The landscape surrounding the river is very varied and a few kilometers away you go from the rocky and inaccessible area where the golden eagle nests to the plains adjacent to the river in the last part of the path.
