This glacier trail has been on my mind since we did the Bernina pass trail last year. The beautiful glacier is visible right from the train and is very inviting. There is a higher trail that leads to a hut at 2500m which gives great view of the glacier, and there is a flatter trail in the valley along the river. Given that it was hot and snow was gone, high trail was clear winner. Its an easy trail, good amount of elevation gain and great views of the glaciers along the Bernina peak and its neighbours. There are couple of nice waterfalls along the way. Some of the trail looked like had suffered recent damage and been rerouted. From the high point we saw people on the lower trail actually touching and walking to the glacier. I guess I would have liked it, but then we would have missed the multiple glacier view from our high perch. Lunch at hut, and then fast way back down, a perfect day.
