After some good hiking (not too hard), you finally get to the "Lake of the old (lady)"... It's is a wonderful lake and from there you have a beautiful view of the alpine surrounding. Worthwhile the effort ...

Very small, but so lovely. The lake is on the mountain, you can go up with a cabin and walk a bit, you will be in the nature, in a very interesting mountain, to see the valleys of Biellese. Not far from the lake you can also taste local food.

If you're in Biella and if you're a fan of mountain and outdoor activities, this is a nice way to spend a sunny day. From Biella there is a very simple way to get to Piedicavallo (unless you don't have a car, of course): bus no.16, which takes you there in about 1 hour. Once arrived there, you will find a small picturesque village (200 inhabitants!) and the path to Lago (lake) della Vecchia, situated at 1872 m. altitude. The itinerary is ok, even for begginners (less than 3h to go up, plus 2h30' to get back), but good mountain shoes and clothes are a must, in order to avoid any accident. This itinerary is very popular, as it offers beautiful sceneries and you will feel tired but also very delighted at the end of the day. :) P.S. If you want to spend the night on the top of the mountain, you can use the Refuge Lago della Vecchia, but only between 15.06-15.09.
