From Bagni del Masino you should go on a well marked footpath. First you should cross a small rock-bridge and go on red-white-red marked track. The first part of the footpath goes along a forest. Around 1500m you will find a large grassy field with amazing view to Pizzo Badile. You can see a painted Omio title. Follow the track and you will go on more and more beautiful places. After a bivouac place you will reach a large grassy place and first time you can see Refugio Omio (2100m).
