The tour begins with the steady ascent from Samnaun-Laret (1700 m). After crossing the Schergenbach the forest road branches off to the left, past the Werkhof. At the Clis Grond pastures the path branches off toward Fuorcla Curschiglias (2,127 m). The crossing actually leads into Val Sampuoir, but there is no path from here into the neighbouring valley. The forest road continues straight for about 500 metres to point 2142, from where you enjoy a beautiful panoramic view from the Samnaun valley over the Tyrolean mountains to the Mundin massif, Val Sampuoir and Muttler. The return journey follows the same route back to Samnaun-Laret.
