At Ardez station, the route leads north to the main road and follows it east wards to the edge of the village. Here the path turns left and leads over the field to the right past the schoolhouse and in two bends to the junction towards Chanoua. Already here you can see an impressive view of the castle ruins over the roofs of Ardez into the Val Sampuoir and on Sur En on the opposite side of the valley. From here, the path climbs steadily to the ruins of the Sust/Säumerstation Chanoua, where a short rest with a view up stream is worthwhile. A few meters further on, you can see the proud Castle Tarasp and the hamlets of the village on the right side of the Inn. The trail follows the road for about 2 km and leads right into the forest at the parking lot in front of the Hotel Paradies, past the hotel and the old mill to the hill Nügla on the southwestern outskirts of Ftan. After being crossed by Ftan with its typical village squares and proud Engadine houses, the trail leads steadily flat to Scuol to the finish of the stage.


as time permits, a short detour to the castle hill of the Steinsberg ruin is recommended in Ardez. Or in Ftan a visit to the toboggan run and airboard slope at the Ftan-Prui.
