The starting point for the hike is Silvaplana's village square "Plazza dal Güglia". The route leads through Silvaplana to Lej Suot, where you can spot mallards or coots in the reeds. The trail continues along the shores of Lake Champfèr. At the second bridge, the trail branches off to the right and after a short climb you reach Lej Marsch, where the route from Sils also arrives. The Lej Marsch is a beautiful marsh lake with numerous outdoor barbecues and is also a popular lake.

The route then continues across the lake to the St. Moritz campsite. It passes between the camp and through the clearing. At the crossroads, the St. Moritz route also meets up. After a few minutes you arrive at the Eglise au bois, the French church of St. Moritz. If you are thirsty, this would be an opportunity to go down to the thermal baths and taste the world-famous St. Moritz healing water in the drinks room. Otherwise, the trail continues past the 'Kinderparadies' playground to the polo field with the athletics track, where top athletes from all over the world train at altitude to prepare for competitions. From there it is not far to the finish, just along the lake, leaving the Catholic church on the left, over the bridge and at the end of the skating rink is the end point of this hike.
