Return over the Albrun pass to Switzerland and the Binntal landscape park, rich in minerals. First there’s an ascent over a scree passage to the Scatto Minoia pass and then a descent to the Alpe Forno, famous for the rare Bettelmatt cheese. After crossing the national border, the trail passes the Binntal hut and follows the Binna river to Binn.
