The hike begins at the post bus stop in Ausserferrera, lying in the Val Ferrera, with its important mining history. Amongst other things, copper was mined and a mine shaft can be visited with a guide. After crossing the river «Ragna da Ferrera» you immediately start the ascent (530 altimeters, about 1.5 hours) through the Val Nursera in the direction of the alp of the same name.

After Alp Nursera the path again climbs up a short distance and at around 2,000 m leads at first towards the Suretta valley. After a short descent to Schwarzwaldalp and another climb (around 200 altimeters), you cross the Suretta valley and reach the «Ross Chopf - horse's head». From here descend through Göriwald to Sufers. Along the way you cross the nascent Hinterrhein and go around half the Sufers reservoir, before reaching your objective, the post bus stop at Sufers. A visit to the alpine dairy is well worthwhile, where there is a wide choice of local cheese specialities.

Author’s recommendation

In Sufers lohnt sich der Besuch der Sennerei mit einer reichen Auswahl lokaler Käsespezialitäten.
