Details

Description

From the station in the direction of the church to the eastern exit of the village, the path leads to a subway. This crosses under the railway line and the Engadin road. The steady incline first leads past the last two Lavin farms to the first hill, where the path divides. Both paths lead to Guarda, the one on the left continues on a steady incline, the one on the right goes straight on at first flat and in a few curves following the slope, before it then joins the upper winter hiking trail again via a somewhat larger incline. Almost exactly halfway between Lavin and Guarda (after the short forest section) is the former settlement of Gonda. After another ascent over the terraced slopes, the trail turns left to the bridge over the Clozza mountain stream, which at this point also forms the municipal boundary between the two large municipalities of Zernez and Scuol. The trail then joins the road and leads to the entrance to Guarda.

Geheimtipp

A tour of Guarda with its beautiful Engadine houses and squares is definitely recommended, however.

Sicherheitshinweis

The trail is groomed after each snowfall. Please note the condition reports in the winter sports report. The tour was assessed in favourable weather conditions, the current snow and weather conditions must be observed before starting.

Attention: At the beginning of the trail (after the last farm in Lavin) there is a barrier that closes the winter hiking trail in case of avalanches. Do not under any circumstances enter the trail when the barrier is closed.
