From the PostBus stop, you cross the Inn directly and reach the small hamlet of San Niclé. At the exit of the village, at Café Etter, the path turns left and follows the road in the direction of the forest. The first metres of altitude are passed through clearings and forests. Always following the road, the path slowly traverses in the direction of the Swiss- austrian border. Immediately after the border, the hiking trail turns right up the forest in the direction of Grünsee. The Grünsee is gently embedded in the forest. Shortly after the eastern end of the lake, a path branches off to the three-country point Switzerland/Austria/Italy, the round trip to the three-country point about 250 meters above the altitude takes about 2 hours. To the larger Schwarzsee it goes down from the Grünsee again. The Schwarzsee invites you to rest directly on the shore through beautiful waterfront places and benches. From the Schwarzsee a path leads in the direction of the Kleinmutzkopf. The route climbs through clear forests and forest clearings again about a hundred meters of altitude, up to the Kleinmutzkopf. From there, the descent begins, first in the west direction then in the direction of Nauders through the forest. Even before reaching the valley station of the Kleinmutzkopf ski lift, the hiking trail turns left (direction Norbertshöhe, which leads to the PostAuto stop Nauders, Norbertshöhe). From the PostBus stop there are connections via Martina back to the starting point to Strada i.E., San Niclé, or directly to Scuol, Samnaun or Mals (Vla Müstair).
