At the entrance of Samnun Dorf, cross the bridge of the Maisas stream toward Musella and after a few metres cross the Schergen stream on the right side. The path zigzags uphill for exactly 100 metres. The path now follows the slope above the small forest to the mountain station of the Musella lift, where the weekly ski shows are held in winter. Afterwards, the descent back to the village follows. The walk ends with a stroll along the village road.
