The tour starts in Arosa and you then walk via the Arlenwald to the Prätschli. The hike continues in the direction of Ochsenalp, which is marked by the hiking trail markings. On this section you have a super view of the whole Schanfigg valley. After a stop at Ochsenalp, the trail continues along the forest road to Tschiertschen. This section is mostly in the forest, but is very pleasant to walk and it is all downhill.
