From the San Jon PostBus stop, the trail initially leads along a field road for about one kilometre. Then you continue along a mountain hiking trail. It first zigzags through dense forest and later through open terrain to the Chamonna Lischana SAC (2500 metres above sea level).

Author’s recommendation

Enjoy the view of the Lower Engadine as well as the evening atmosphere from up here a little longer and spend the night in the Chamonna Lischana SAC. You can find availabilities and further information here.
