Monte Cuccio is a mountain peak at an elevation of 1.041m (3,415ft) above the sea level, located in the Italian island of Sicily. The climb is brutal: narrow and steep.
This infamous gravel road to the summit is bumped and very narrow. It’s called Via Pineta Antica. This road has innumerable twists and turns. Stay away if you're scared of heights. After rain, even a single rainfall, the road can be impassable. Watch out for sudden loose-gravel breaks. Expect a trail pretty steep. Starting from San Martino delle Scale, the ascent is 13.6 km long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 494 meters. The average gradient is 3.63%, with some sections up to 12%. At the summit there’s a communication tower.
