From Piano di Peccia (prior bus reservations: +41 (0)79 577 48 11), head along the road to the Ghéiba bridge, where there is a barrier. Cross the bridge: the path starts on the right. The route to the Poncione refuge negotiates many steps, first to the Corte di Fondo di Sròdan, then past the Grassa del Piatto.
The path climbs steadily, becoming quite steep from the Corte di Fondo di Scròdan. Nature, with its rich colours and tumbling streams, makes the effort worthwhile and fills one with energy.
The Poncione di Braga refuge can be seen fairly early on; its panoramic terrace awaits. Though not attended, beverages are available to purchase.
