The trail along the Schergenbach begins directly at the PostBus stop Chasa Riva (below the guest information centre). Passing the sports field you reach Samnaun-Ravaisch and the valley station of the double-decker cable railway. To the left the Schergenbach, to the right the mixed forest with larches and pines. In Samnaun-Plan you will also find the valley museum Chasa Raetica, presumably the oldest building in the Samnaun valley dating from the 16th century. Immediately after leaving the village you walk past the approximately 50 bee colonies of the Samnaun beekeeper. You reach your destination of Samnaun-Laret after about one hour.
