The lake has a circular pedestrian cycle path along its entire surface and a "lookout" for the admiration of the surrounding landscape. Lake Ragogna is moraine, was formed about 12,000 years ago in a depression in the hills after a slow process of melting glacier tiliaventino that at that time occupied the so-called plain of Osoppo. Recognized by the European Union as a natural site of community interest because of its special nature, it is characterized by an elliptical, has a diameter of about 700 m. With an area of ​​25 hectares and its current size - about a quarter of the original due to reclamation made to the thirties - and has a depth of up to 9.10 meters. In addition to the rain storm the lake is fed by the contribution of some streams down from the southern slopes of the mountain and the surrounding hills and from an underground spring, situated in the north-west near the present batimetro. Some archaeological research led to the discovery of historical sites dating back to the age of Recent Mesolithic and Neolithic Age (5000 BC), belonging to an agricultural community that had settled on the banks of the lake. An important feature of the lake is the presence of "water chestnut" (Trapa Natans), aquatic plant leaves rhomboid / lance-shaped and toothed whose characteristic is the fruit from the casing woody reddish brown color with four points. This edible fruit and used for food since prehistoric times, was collected at the end of the summer and once dried was ground to obtain a flour. On the edges of the lake basin meet plants typical of wetlands, such as willows, alders and poplars.

Great place to visit for bird watchers and nature lovers if you would like to take a brake from cities and agriculture land. The best time for birds will be late April and May.
