Old transit trail from the Albulatal valley into Schams. Views across to the Walser settlements on Heinzenberg. Through sparse larch forests and across alp pastures into the romantic Val Schons. Sgraffito adorns the stately dwelling houses of Zillis and Andeer, where therapeutic baths reward the weary hiker.
