Description

From Tschiertschen, where many holiday chalets have sprung up along the well-marked route in recent decades, you follow the road southwards via Clüs–Bleiswald forest up into the Löser, where the partially tarred improvement road ends.   After crossing over the Urden creek, the old Ochsenalp route from the 19th century leads up the steep valley wall south-eastward again to Gatter (Pt. 1871). This varied section of the route passes below the exposed former wild-hay region of Bleisen and Güda. However it is geologically interesting thanks to the change in rock types.

After around 2km along a virtually flat path, we reach Ochsenalp, the popular excursion location with its traditional Alpine restaurant. The comfortable path leads eastward along a gentle incline to the forest edge between pines, larches and firs through to Alp Wolfboden and then to Rot Tritt vantage point.

From there we pass through Prätsch, once a permanently inhabited Walser settlement, Ober Prätschsee, pleasantly warm in summer (you can bathe here) and the Maraner Alp (5 minutes to Prätschli bus station) to Maran and down to Arosa RhB train station.
