Along the "God dals Plauns", a mix of forest and open plain awaits you. Near Camping Morteratsch you will have to take off your snowshoes to cross the main road. From there, the trail takes you through the snow-covered forest directly to the Morteratsch car park or to its railway station.

This trail can be started from either side.

Author’s recommendation

If you walk quietly, you may spot some squirrels or even larger forest dwellers.

Even in bad weather, there is a lot to discover here.
