Hi Walkies, friends of walkies, and all who would like to mingle with us,

End of summer, after a series of nice hikes up the mountains, and to celebrate all the peaks we have reached, let's meet for a day by the lake with BBQ, Beer and Sun.

We will go up (see options below), then walk to the beach about 1 km, through the forest. Minor ups and downs. You can also bike up. Contact me for details.


We will meet at Protected content . Chance to quickly buy a few missing items, bathroom, then we move to the second point, where we can leave some of the cars. ***Due to the limited spaces to park close to the lake, and the toll/fee for the road (CHF 5.- in, CHF 5.- out per car) we prefer to drive up with the minimum number of cars.***

Then, we drive, walk or bike up, find spots to leave the cars, bikes, and walk.

After travelling up to Orbello again in order to check the parking capacity, which is very limited, and the possibility that other people might be there too, and seeing many people signing up, we will have a parking issue. best case we can park around Protected content near the trail to the lake.


1. Who would like to walk up? That is an uphill in forest, part on stairs. 2.9 km, 480m elevation difference to the parking. from there to lake: 1 km.

2. Who would like to bike up? If you leave your bike at the parking, and walk from there, a road bike is just fine. 4.8km, 475m elevation.

3. Motorcycle.

4. Drive up, either find a spot near the trail to the lake, or find a small spot up to 1 km up or down the road.

Walkers, bikers will of course give there food and other equipment to one of the drivers.

Please write back to me, what your preference is.

For people who wish to join later, I will send later exact instructions and a map.


Comfortable shoes for the short walk: Hiking shoes, or good sneakers.
BBQ: Food, drinks. If you have an extra grilling rack (griglia), would be great.

Bathrooms: This is a spot in nature. No facilities, only trees, a creek, a lake.

See y'all,
