From Samnaun-Compatsch a well-developed forest road leads to the Tschoccas forest cabin, and on through the beautiful larch and Swiss stone pine forest toward Piz Urezza. Now the ascent begins over flowering alpine meadows to Munt da Chierns. From Munt da Chierns you have a great view of the surrounding mountains and the Zanders valley. After the descent on the path via Spatlasattel you can take a break at the shepherd's family, from where you continue towards Alp Trida and Alp Trider saddle. Alternatively, you can reach Alp Trida saddle by chair-lift from Alp Trida and then by cable-car to Samnaun-Ravaisch.
