Vom Doss See nach einem kurzen und angenehmen Aufstieg erreichen wir die Alp Pian Doss. Eine unbeschreibliche Ruhe und eine beachtliche AUssicht führen uns in eine Märchenwelt. Nach kurzem Abstieg durch den lichten Tannenwald erreichen wir Forcola. Wir wandern an den schlafenden Hütten vorbei und kurz danach sind wir auf der Strasse, die uns an den See Doss zurückführt.
