From the Alp Trida saddle mountain station, the path first leads leisurely towards Hüttenboden. With a little luck you will see edelweiss blooming right next to the path. From Hüttenboden the path climbs slightly to Salaaser Eck and Ravaischer Salaas. The Gipslöcher are impressive sinkholes in the gypsum rock. To the south, below Piz Rots on the left, you can see the Vadret (Sulnerferner). At Zeblas, the hiking trail leads a short distance down into the valley and then turns immediately right, past a hunting lodge and a small lake towards Sulnerferner. At the foot of the glacier, you can imagine yourself in a high alpine landscape, framed by Piz Vadret (Sulnerspitz) and the mighty flank of Piz Rots. Then the path leads back over the Zeblas pasture, where you continue along the road toward Val Masauna to Samnaun Dorf.
