The starting point is the former farm market square of Quarona, next to the soccer field. Walk along Prato della Valle and reach the road that enters the valley between Monte Tucri and the reliefs of Poggi Roncacci-Pianale. Follow the road up the end of the small valley, then take the path that climbs up a stony ground and enters a narrow gorge called "Bunda Tuppa”. As if blocking the road is a massive rock called "Sass dij Strij e d'Ava Corna”, under which the upper lake resurgence comes out. Keep left, reach the saddleback near the underground emissary, south of the Lake of S. Agostino lake, also known as the "Lago dei rospi” (Toad’s lake). Walk along the lake bank first on a stony ground, then entering the woods on the east side. Past the lake is the next basin, then you will reach the Saddle of S. Agostino. Descend following the muletrack to arrive at the village of Roccapietra.
