From dawn to dusk, but especially during the day, this forest circuit on the northern slope under San Jon offers a lot of variety and enough shade to master the steep climb. 
At the start at the mineral water fountain (!) in Scuol Plaz head south through the old part of the village to the covered wooden bridge and up to the campsite Gurlaina. Here it goes over a steep gravel path directly to the road to S-charl. Steadily climbing steeply over forest paths, we cross this tarred road twice more and reach the viewpoint "Bellavista" on a hill with an inviting bench and a wide view over the entire village. The subsequent descent (rooted and blocked) leads us zigzagging back to the tarred road between Gurlaina and Scuol, which we follow downhill for 100 meters and then turn right into the forest on the Helsana Trail. This flat trail leads above Pradella to the Aual da Triazza. Along this stream we climb to the right to the clearing "Plan Grond" and reach along the clearing back towards Scuol. Parallel to the Helsana Walking Trail, the trail leads to the stream "Val Lischana". Here the line branches off to the right and leads to the steel bridge at the source of Lischana. After crossing the Inn at this lowest point of the tour, we always reach the west on tar and paved roads back into the old village part of Scuol and thus the start and finish point of the round.


The tour was evaluated in favorable weather conditions. The route is partly mixed with roots and coarser stones. The tour requires a certain amount of concentration and is recommended for trail runners.
