on trail 343, from Erdemolo
The Rifugio Sette Selle can be reached from Lake Erdemolo, along path 343, on a crossing which rises to a height of 2300 m. The route changes several times outlook and character, with stretches on a ridge, then down through verdant mountains, and some stretch of stony porphyry. Even the scenery and the views are varied and very beautiful.
