Just down the small village of Capestrano startsTirino River that is fed by three sources: Capo d'Acqua Lake, Presciano and the Small Lake under Capestrano. The water comes mainly from Capo d'Acqua Lake while the other two are almost stopped.

The name of the river comes from the greek "tritano" and it means precisely threefold source. The Valle where the river flows is also called Tritana Valley or Trita Valley.

The river flows for 25 km in the fertile valley Tritana with a water flow of 6000 liters per second between the provinces of L'Aquila (Ofena, Capestrano) and Pescara (Bussi sul Tirino) before it joins to the Aterno-Pescara River. Its waters are crystal clear and clean, ideal for trout and other fish species. Close to the banks or swampy can be seen wading birds and waterfowl. Instead the nearest forests and the slopes of the mountains are rich of wildlife.
