From the little church of San Plasch, the trail descends into the ravine to the Puntsot bridge and then climbs steeply. Follow the signposts with the destination "Vadrain-Vinadi".

On the old dirt road, pass the meadows of Mundaditsch and the Urezzas forest, where you then follow the wide road leading up to Martina for about 150m downhill. Then turn left again into the path that you finally reach the Vadrain hill shortly afterwards.

Continue to the forest workers' hut in La Vota (signpost: Pra d'Arsüra-Vinadi), then into the forest and down to the ravine of Val Tiatsch. Walk along the visibly narrowed path to the clearing Pra d'Arsüra. Now the area becomes wilder and in some places quite steeply sloping, but the path is easily passable.

Crossing the Val Mundlin, you reach an impressive viewpoint shortly afterwards. The trail then descends very steeply to the left into Val Zipla. Now follows the less demanding descent to Vinadi.
