The round tour starts at the train station Klosters Platz. It first leads along the well-known "Gadäwäg" before the first crisp ascent through the Monbieler- and Alp forest to the Älpeltispitz is tackled. The short detour to the summit of the 2'685m high Älpeltispitz should be planned in any case, especially as it offers a breathtaking view of the Grisons mountains. The trail then leads over Ochsenwäng and down into the beautiful Schlappintal. Along the murmuring Schlappinbach, the trail leads via Usser Säss and the Kübliser Alp to Inner Säss. From Usser Säss, the trail rises again. After passing the Hüenersee, it is not far to the second peak - the Schottenseefürgli. From here you have a beautiful view of the second lake of this tour - the Schottensee. From Schottenseefürggli it is only downhill. The trail passes the third lake, the Seetalsee. This is also the location of the Seetal hut of the SAC. The last part of the trail leads slightly downhill over Alp Sardasca along the Verstanclabach and Alp Garfiun down to Monbiel and then on to Klosters Platz.

At Alp Sardasca, the syrup bar offers a welcome refreshment.
