From the Stockalper Castle to Briga we go back up to the high part of the village among nice still-wooden homes coming out into the Ried pastures which offer a beautiful scenery on Briga. Here we enter the Saltina gully with an always wide and well-kept path which goes down very steeply up to coming out on the cantonal road around Schallberg. Here we go back down steeply up until Grund and then go back up the narrow valley crossing a torrent more than once via numerous wooden bridges. With one last steep tract we get down to the Sempione pass.
