From Hinterrhein (Normal route) Zapporthütte SAC 2276 m
- 3:30 h, 765 m
After a hike of around 4 kilometers across the area of the (unactive!) shooting range, the initially rough, gently ascending hut trail through the gorge of the young Hinterrhein begins. Later, as you move onto the open slopes, the path becomes better and more promising. The path is closed when the range is being used. Information at the shooting range Hinterrhein: 058 482 11 11 / https://www.vtg.admin.ch/de/aktuell/mitteilungen/schiessmachen/hinterrhein.html There is no shooting on weekends.
From the San Bernadino Tunnel's north entrance (1610 m) hike along the military road and tank tracks on the northern edge of the shooting range to its western end and the massive earth mound, where the marked hut approach begins.
From the west end of the shooting range, follow the mountain path along the north bank of the Hinterrhein, sometimes on a slope, sometimes directly along the river bed. The final approach climbs more over the flank, crosses the brook at Höll (short descent), then climbs diagonally westward to reach the hut just after P. 2265.
