We start at the Clozza fountain near the Ospidal Scuol. Here you will always find the best sports drink fresh. For a few meters we follow the road uphill, in the curve we go straight along the river towards Clozzua spring and come on the trail towards Flöna – Motta Naluns. Through the forest through the impressive Clozza gorge it goes on a path more or less steep to Flöna. The first 3 km and almost 500 hm are done. Along a clearing we continue uphill. During the alpine season, the cowbells accompany us here. After 600 m we turn right and follow the path towards Motta Naluns. Here the path is evenly steep. Shortly before Motta Nalun's intermediate destination, it gets steep again and the steep S-curves make the pulse rise again. In Motta Naluns we can finish the tour and glide comfortably with the gondola to Scuol. Or we follow the road towards Chamanna Naluns – Piz Clünas and cover another 1.8 km and 200 m ascent. Here you can already hear the first whistles of the marmots and our summit destination beckons. From the mountain restaurant Palme (only open in winter) begins a beautiful trail in the slope, which leads us to Alp Clünas. After a few meters on the road we follow the signpost on the steep mountain path to Piz Clünas. On the last 1.5 km we complete 350 hm, first zigzagging through alpine meadows and past avalanche barriers, at the end steeply in the Fallinie through rather slippery terrain. On the summit we are rewarded with a magnificent view of the Lower Engadine Dolomites on the opposite side of the valley as well as towards Piz Buin and the Silvretta Group in a northwesterly direction.

For the descent, we recommend the path in a northerly direction to the Lai Minschun back to Alp Clünas and on the ascent path back to the mountain station Motta Naluns.
