Before setting off on the National Park Hiking Tour, the National Park Centre in Zernez offers the opportunity to learn everything there is to know about the Swiss National Park. From Zernez, the first stage leads eastwards towards the Ofen Pass and outside the village at the covered wooden bridge over the Spöl. From there, continue over old farmland terraces and through a sparse larch forest to the entrance to the Val Cluozza. The path now becomes steep. The path zigzags steadily upwards, passing viewpoints that offer views of the Cluozza valley and the Quattervals massif. At the "II Prà" waypoint, the trail branches off to the south. Extensive stands of Scots pine are crossed and now and then a glimpse into the depths of the Cluozza gorge can be dared. The trail continues downhill and after crossing some old pine-larch mixed forests, you soon reach the stream where you cross the Ova da Cluozza over the wooden bridge. From there it's another 80 metres or so uphill to the idyllic destination of the day, Chamanna Cluozza.

Note: Dogs are not allowed in the Swiss National Park, not even on a lead. Further information on this and all protection regulations can be found at nationalpark.ch/protectionregulations.
