In the morning from the Chamanna Cluozza (1882 m a.s.l.) through pine-larch forest and later through pine fields uphill. At 2200 m a.s.l. through a steep scree trough - a fixed rope provides support here - and then across the alpine pastures of the Murter. Cattle used to graze here, but today numerous marmots, which are ideal to observe, inhabit the area near the path. At the level of the ruins of the old alpine building, the dinosaur tracks on the Piz dal Diavel can be spotted with good binoculars. Shortly afterwards, the trail reaches the Murtersattel (2545 m a.s.l.), where a brisk wind often blows. Now the view opens up to the Spöltal valley and the Engadine Dolomites. The descent begins steeply and on Plan dals Poms leads past ruins of former alpine buildings once again. After this terrace, the seemingly endless zigzag path begins through stands of Scots pine and later through a magnificent larch, stone pine, spruce and pine forest. At the clearing of Plan Praspöl (1690 m a.s.l.) the valley floor is almost reached. Only 10 more minutes to the bridge over the Spöl, where the final ascent to the post bus stop Vallun Chafuol/P3 begins.
