The satrting point is the Surlej bridge.  The path leads through the woods, over Crest'Alta, towards St. Moritz and to the mystical Lej Nair. At this little moor lake, barbecue sites and various benches invite visitors to stop and linger for a while. Alternatively, you can take a leisurely stroll along the walkway around the lake; with a little luck, you might spot a dragonfly or two. The path continues over a few tree roots down to the Lej Marsch. This lake is particularly popular for bathing and features a number of barbecue sites. After a leisurely rest, the trail leads to Lake Champfèr and back to Surlej on the southern shore. Those who do not want to walk all the way back to Surlej can make their way past the Olympic ski jump and down to the main road, where the bus will take them from the “Campingplatz” (campsite) bus stop back to Surlej.
