Lake Moregna is located in the northern Lagorai chain, at an altitude of 2081, near the homonymous malga in a grassy plain surrounded by the spurs of Dos Caligher and facing the Cime Moregna and further away in the south, Cima Valmaggiore. Lake Moregna can be reached from Predazzo, Val di Fiemme, on the forest road for Malga Valmaggiore and from here onto trail 339 through the pine forest of the "Busa of Slavaci".
In a south west direction, not far from Lake Moregna, is Lake delle Trote , facing the Cadinon. Further south, nestled between Cima Moregna and Colrotondo, at an altitude of 2207 is Lake “Brutto”, ( ugly), in name but not in fact. From here you can climb the Forcella Moregna and do a circular route following trails 349 and 349 b until you reach Lake Moregna, again. It's also possible to elongate the hike by following trail 349 (some precautions needed in the event of snow) to Forcella Valmaggiore and the Paolo and Nicola bivaouc, here trail 353 leads you to Malga Valmaggiore. This hike is full of small ponds.
