The itinerary starts in front of the lake and continues following the flight of steps before the Park Hotel (649) until it meets the asphalt road (via Belfiore) you will follow uphill for about 80m. When you reach the bar, take Nardini dirt road (649C). Do not consider the first junction to Mt. Maccagnino, continue along the dirt road and, after about 15', once you reach the junction to torrent Riarbero, go downhill on the left towards Belfiore valley bottom (647B) and then go ahead northwards (647). After a few hundred meters, you will meet Rio Torbido, whose name derives from the whitish color of its waters. Here it is worth to make a short detour to visit the small karst cave where you will admire Triassic gypsum and limestone outcrops. Also the nearby torrent Riàrbero (originally called Rialbo, from "white creek") and, on the slope of Tuscany, the town of Sassalbo, recall in the name the white color of the rocks.
