Starting at the Orden parking, the road leads to the Salecina venue. This first section criss-crosses the sunny Orden circular trail. Then a wide forest path leads up towards the lake. This route is also used by experienced cross-country skiers, snowshoe trekkers and ski tourers. There are frequent places where the trees thin out to reveal views of the majestic Piz da la Margna peak. The little Cavloccio Restaurant is closed in winter, but you can relax on its terrace and let your gaze wander up to the Piz Salacina peak.

For those who want to hike further: The winter trail continues to Plan Canin. After a narrow passage, the valley opens up with views towards the Muretto Pass, Pizzi dei Rossi and the Forn Valley.

Author’s recommendation

Take a picnic and tea with you! The restaurant Cavloccio is closed in winter, but there are sunny benches.
