From the PostBus stop, the trail leads to the western exit of Sent village. After crossing a small bridge, the well-prepared road climbs slightly. As the first section of the trail is on the toboggan run, be careful of oncoming toboggans. Always slightly ascending, the winter hiking trail leads over open terrain with views of the snow-covered mountains on the opposite side of the valley and over the Lower Engadine. Benches invite you to take a break with a view. Passing the Bain Tuffarolas farm, the path continues along the sun, always slightly uphill, past three holiday homes over a large plain with a view to the southwest of the Lower Engadine Dolomites. From here the trail to Scuol descends steadily via Pazos. Shortly before Scuol, snow-covered trees line the winter hiking trail and round off the hike through sunlit winter scenery. From the Scuol Ospidal PostBus stop, the sports bus (free of charge) takes you back to the Scuol-Tarasp railway station.

Author’s recommendation

Sent, with its church spire, Engadine houses and numerous village fountains, is considered a "picture-book village" and is a great place to visit.
