From Maloja the trail climbs up to Lägh da Cavloc and on to Alp da Cavloc. Further on, through the strange hilly landscape, to Plan Canin, where the path branches off to the Muretto Pass. Continuing through the wild Forno Valley, you reach the glacier forefield of the Forno glacier via scree fields. After a steep ascent over the moraine on the left side, you reach the Forno hut on the path high above the valley and over rocks and boulders.
