From the PostBus stop Sent, Sala you initially walk through roads lined with beautiful Engadine houses via the village centre Plaz to the north-eastern exit of Sent. Cross the meadows above Sent on a dirt road and walk through a wooded area to the Telf farmsteads. After entering the Val Spadla high valley, before Spadla Alp, the path turns right towards the ridge of the Spadla mountain range. Over several hairpin bends you quickly gain altitude and finally reach Mot Spadla above the avalanche barriers. On the ridge the hike becomes a little more difficult technically and requires some concentration. However, you can no longer miss your destination; on the ridge with views of Val Sinestra you soon reach the summit. Due to its height and exposed position, you enjoy a magnificent panoramic view over the peaks and valleys of the Silvretta group. The way back leads over the western ridge to Fuorcla Spadla. If you still have enough energy left, you can choose to add the approximately 200 metres in altitude to Piz Soèr. Otherwise, you now descend into Val Spadla. At Alp Spadla, you again reach the forest road that takes you back to Sent on the same path. At Alp Telf, you can take the path that leads steeply down across the meadows into the forest and follow the natural road via Marièrs, reaching the reservoir of the municipality and Sent.
