The route starts in Molinis Sand and leads along flower meadows, through the forest to Tschiertschen. A village on the south side of the Schanfigg.  Shortly before Tschiertschen, the hiking trail leads past the "Alte Sagi". When you reach your destination, an original village with wooden houses in the Walser building tradition awaits you. 

Author’s recommendation

In the summer months (high season), this hiking trail can be discovered in a traditional nostalgic post bus. A family experience for young and old. The nostalgia postbus runs several times a day from Molinis Sand to Tschiertschen.
