The hike starts at the Untersee lake Arosa on the old Poststrasse. After the first hundred metres you may already enjoy a fantastic view on the reservoir lake, the Schiesshorn and the Furggahörner. The trail continues through the forest along the Plessur river all the way down to Langwies where a short cut leads on a narrow, romantic path under the 62m high viaduct of Langwies. The view from above can be admired from the train on the return journey.
