This hike begins in the centre of Samnaun-Compatsch. Slightly ascending, you reach the "Mottas Laretas" hill via the forest road along the culture trail, where the barbecue area with benches invites you to linger and a beautiful view of Samnaun-Compatsch opens up. When you cross the Malfragbach stream, you also cross the Swiss-Austrian border. Now the trail continues across the Zanderswiesen meadows. After crossing the Zandersbach stream, keep to the right and hike in the direction of Spiss. At the playground, turn right again after about 300 metres and cross the Zandersbach again. Now you are back in Switzerland. The trail now follows the wild course of the stream to Spissermühle, where the PostBus takes hikers back to Samnaun.
