  • Quite simple tour starting from Riale. Through the most challenging shortcuts, or a road suitable for the whole family, in about an hour and a half you will arrive at a crossroads that allows you to reach Lake Toggia or Lake Castel. Unfortunately in this period (mid-May) the lakes are still covered with snow. The view is certainly beautiful, with still some snow here and there. We will be back this summer to see the lakes.
  • It was originally a natural lake known as "the fish". Between 1929 and 1932 a dam 44 meters high by 200 in length transformed it into a basin of 16 million cubic meters which maintained, however, a great fascination also thanks to the splendid valley that hosts it. Very easy to reach it is a paradise for hikers and cyclists. Too bad for the power line that passes next.
  • Starting from Riale in Alta Val Formazza, follow the signs for M.Luisa refuge. continue until you reach this beautiful Lake Toggia at 2,191 m. Then you can continue up to the S.Giacomo Pass, border with Switzerland at 2313 m and here begins Alta Vallemaggia
  • Artificial lake at 2191 mt. s.l.m. The Toggia dam, built in the years 1929-32 on the Roni stream, has a length of 199 meters and is 44 meters high. A dirt road runs along the western shore and then continues towards the San Giacomo Pass which marks the border with Switzerland.
  • We took a nice ride between Riale, Morasco lake, San Giacomo Pass, Toggia lake, Boden lakes and Castel lake. Long but feasible (I did it because my knees are broken and I'm out of practice!). Very nice ride.
