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