Go past the new National Park Centre in Zernez and continue to the end of the village, cross the Spölbach creek and follow the signs to Chamanna Cluozza (Cluozza Hut). The path first takes you across beautiful meadows before it begins to climb. It passes the monument of P.B. Sarasin, the founder of the National Park, and ascends through the rugged Cluozza valley. The ever changing scenery from steep rock slopes to a spectacular ravine and light mountain forests makes this route particularly attractive. From Chamanna Cluozza the path climbs, steeply at times, to Murtèr ridge where it opens up to stunning views. On the descent, the trail leads through the craggy Praspöl canyon and across a bridge to the PostBus stop of Vallun Chafuol on the Ofen Pass road.
