The sunny and open canal path passes by many resting benches with views of the Albula valley. At the Sporz junction, a steep path leads up to Sporz. Below the Maiensäss Hotel Guarda Val, turn onto the beautiful and snow-covered winter hiking trail, cross the Cresta ski lift track, continue to the Val Sporz car park and back to the village or take the free sports bus on the blue/red line. 

Author’s recommendation

Admire the icicles along the way.

Stop at Guarda Val for coffee and cake - it's worth it.
