Classic itinerary in Valmaggiore, not far from the village of Predazzo.
Distance 3.5 km
The Lagorai Chain is famous for its wild and remote spots, elements that make it particularly suggestive. Lago Cece is no exception and the path that reaches it is very fascinating. Near the lake there is a characteristic wooden hut that is always open and a table with 2 benches ideal for a tasty picnic.
From the lake it is possible to continue along the trail no. 336 and reach the characteristic Laghetto Caserina in less than an hour.

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
From Ponte (bridge) Valmaggiore (1570m) take path No. 336 which goes into the woods, where the damages of the Vaia storm are visible. The route takes place first on a forest road and then continues on a classic mountain path. After passing a beautiful pasture, continue the walk, until you reach the suggestive Lago di Cece with it's wooden hut.
If you want, you can continue for about 1 hour to the characteristic Lago di Caserina, always on path No. 336. The small lake, set among large porphyry boulders, has an intense color that varies from dark green to blue.
Return back on the same route.
