Monte Curcio is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 1.769m (5,803ft) above the sea level, located in the Calabria region of Southern Italy.
The road to the summit, located within the Sila National Park, is rocky and gravel. It’s a chairlift access trail. The slope is very steep, consists of loose stones and becomes even steeper and rocky in the upper part. The wind is usually quite strong at mountain areas. High winds blow here all year long. The road to the summit is a ski-station service road pretty steep, with some sections up to 30%. At the summit there’s a mountain refuge called Rifugio Monte Curcio.
