Route description

Hinterrhein - Zapporthütte

From the north entrance of the San Bernardino tunnel (1611 m) head west to the shooting range (P. 1637) then along the fairly flat north side of the valley to Höhgufer. When the valley starts to narrow, cross to the south side of the Hinterrhein (river) and continue past Zapportstafel, through the gorge and into the open area of Paradies. Pass P. 2096 in the river, then cross back over the Hinterrhein and ascend the steep slopes up to the hut.
