The chairlift from Falera leads to the start of the approximately one hour and family friendly hike. On the way you pass benches, from which you can enjoy the wonderful view while pausing. The descent to Falera is very well marked on the mountain trail, so we can enjoy the wonderful view of the Signina Group and the Rhine canyon. Again it goes past fragrant mountain meadows down to Falera.
