Take the Ritóm aerial cable-car from Piotta to the mountain station, where the hike begins. Follow the road till you hit the dam. From there, follow the lakeshore road along Lago Ritóm until you hit the sign pointing you towards the Alpe Tom. From there, follow the hiking trail to the hut Capanna Cadlimo. At Point 2077 the trail forks. Go towards Cadagno di fuori. You will now be on the other side of the valley, from where you will have more views that will leave you breathless. Pass by Alpe Fontanella and Pinett, until you hit the dam again from where you started your hike. Then go back to the mountain station of the Ritóm aerial cable-car, and descend to Piotta.
