Lake Nino, the second largest lake in Corsica, has an exceptional setting for enjoying a hike.
Starting near Vergio Pass, not far from the forest house of Popaggia, take the marked trail to climb toward the Valdoniello forest until reaching the Bocca a Stazzona. After two-and-a-half hours walking, you will discover the vastness of Lake Nino and its pozzines (water wells, where it is forbidden to tread) where wild horses graze. Pass under the Capu a u Tozzu to then join the Col de Saint-Pierre. Again on the marked path, descend back to your starting point.
At about 14km and 6 hours of walking, this tour requires good physical condition and the preparation of a small backpack.
