Pleasant winter hike on a wide road from Scuol to Sent with views of the Inn and the eastern end of the valley. Initially from Scuol slightly downhill toward the Inn and then through open terrain along the southern slope up to La Fuorcha until you reach Sent. Can be combined with the return route via Chauennas to Scuol.

From the PostBus stop Scuol Clozza, the winter hiking trail leads through Scuol to the eastern end of the village. From here, a wide road continues through open terrain and, with a view of Sent, slightly downhill toward the Inn. At the next fork in the trail, the path begins to rise steadily along the southern slope in an easterly direction. An underpass allows you to traverse the Engadine road safely and soon you reach La Fuorcha and finally Sent. From here you can return to Scuol by PostBus (half-hourly service). Alternatively, you can hike on the winter hiking trail from Sent via Chauennas back to Scuol, from where the sports bus will take winter guests back to the train station free of charge.

Author’s recommendation

In Sent it is worth taking a few minutes to walk through the village with its wide squares and look up to the sky. The famous Sent gables date back to the late 18th century, when many villagers working abroad (mostly in Italy and Austria) as confectioners hoped for an economically better life and thus shaped the flair of the village.
