The hike begins in Samnaun-Compatsch at the late Gothic church of St. Jakobus and first leads along the culture trail into the Zander Valley. After crossing the border into neighbouring Tyrol, the hike climbs to the Fliesseralpe, where the alpine inn invites you to take a break. The hike continues via the Fliesser Stieralpe to the Matschiberlesattel. Here the view opens up into the Samnaun Valley, towards the Reschen Pass and the Oetztaler Alps. At Unter Malfrag the national border is crossed again, as you can see immediately from the different trail markings (Austria: red-white-red; Switzerland: white-red-white). At the Spatlasattel the panorama changes again, this time you can see the Swiss side of the Silvretta Arena, Samnaun's local mountain Muttler and the Fluchthorn to the west. On the descent to Alp Bella, the trail passes the round rock formation "bei der Kirche"; an impressive geological witness to the folding of the Alps. From Alp Bella, the descent continues to Unteralp, where the Alpstein, one of the largest boulders in Switzerland, lies. The route leads leisurely along the Mülbach stream back to Samnaun-Compatsch.
