This tour is simple and suitable to just about anyone. From Riale follow the paved road up to the Morasco Dam and then walk around the lake along the unpaved path. Having come to the end of the lake go down along the track on the left and cross the bridge proceeding up to the hydro-electric power station. From here onwards a wide flat path starts which completes our tour around the lake. Once arrived at the dam descend along the track which comes to a crossroads with the street that goes up to Furculti: turn left and go down to the Bimse Mountain Hut and after the Toce Torrent return to the paved road leading to Riale. As a more difficult variant it is also possible to go up to the Furculti Alp (at 130 m above the paved road) and then go down along the path dedicated to Mario Rigoni Stern which takes us directly to Riale di Sotto.
