From the mountain station of the double-decker cable railway you can reach Alp Trida via the flow trail. Here the freeride trail begins comfortably on an alpine path along the Mülbach. After 600 metres the trail leaves the alpine path. The terrain becomes steeper and the trail leads in rapid curves down toward the Unteralp. The Alpstein, one of the largest erratic boulders in Switzerland, is located on the Unteralp. From here the trail descends for about one kilometre, less winding but always nicely along the slope, until you reach the Mülbach again. Now it continues in rapid curves toward Samnaun-Laret. Leading back to the valley station of the mountain railway, it continues for about 2 km along a slightly ascending road.
