Just before arriving here (about 300 m) after a long diagonal stretch, near the bend there are some signs for lago Barco-Vermiglio. Thre road continues steeply to the right and after 100 m becomes a forest road. Continue uphill to the end of this road where theris avery marshy stretch and crosses numerous streams and finally joins the path SAT n. 205 which, from Vermiglio leads to Lago di Barco. (The lake can be reached on foot in about 40 minutes). Continue downhill on SAT n. 205 for about 200 m until arriving at the forest road Palù-Barco. After bypassing the junction Masi di Palù and Solcar a long descent leads to Masi di Volpaia and to the cross-country ski piste which run alongside the fields and brings you to the 'Laghetti di Vermiglio', Masi Poia and the downhill road to Ossana, where a visit to the mediaeval castle is highly recommended.
