During a recent trip to Western Sicily we went into the park both from the southern and the northern end. Unfortunately, you cannot go all the way through (or into the higher areas) because a fire in July has affected the safety of the paths (- presumably because the wooden supports/railings were destroyed). However, the park is certainly still worth a visit (and the 3 Euro entrance fee). The walk from the southern end is more severely restricted, although the fire damage at the northern end is more evident. It was good to see that the vegetation is in the process of recovering, with many of the damaged fan palms sprouting new growth from the top as well as the base.
