Route description

Riale–Rifugio Città di Busto

Von Riale auf der Strasse zum Parkplatz am Fuss der Staumauer des Lago di Morasco. Nun auf markiertem Weg zum See hoch und dem Nordufer entlang zur Talstation einer Werkbahn. Etwas später kommt man zu einem Wegweiser: Der linke, direktere Weg zur Hütte ist schneller, aber etwas ausgesetzter (T3, 2 Std. 30 Min.), der rechte holt aus bis zur Alp Bättelmatt und ist sanfter (T2, 2 Std. 45 Min.).
