The route starts from the summit of Mount Bisbino (1325 m) dominating the first Como and the Lake and can be reached by road by following the directions for Cernobbio Bisbino Rovenna away. From the top take the path behind the shrine and go through the pine forest and then grazing past two bends of the road to the building known as Ca Bossi. No longer follow the road you enter the flat on a street that becomes a path through the woods and back out along the remedying of Bugone. The Refuge Bugone, m. 1119 in the town of Moltrasio, is located right here in a panoramic position surrounded by beech trees and sunny meadows: always open in summer, during the years in working weekends and holidays or by appointment (+39 031.513808.) It offers 20 beds, a beautiful alpine winterraum for winter or summer in the outdoor restaurant with excellent cuisine and Clare Lords of Severino Azzano. From the refuge Bugone continue on a large cart Poncione cutting the north flank of the Coast and over the Alpe di Crinco returns on the ridge, overlooking Lake Como, and reach Murelli, wide depression mountain ridge just south of Mount San Bernardo. Here the pass meets the factory Murelli Refuge (1200 m in the town of Moltrasio), a former barracks of the GDF assigned to the section of the CAI Moltrasio (+39 031.290655). From Murelli continues along the first cart in a northerly direction along the west coast of St. Bernard, then left the cart you get up directly to a seat beyond which we descend into the head of the stream leads to Rifugio Quaglio twin (1300 m.
