Starting point is Madulain railway station. From there, the path leads up until the winter hiking trail branches off to the right after the last houses of Madulain. The trail now follows the treeline with a wonderful view of Zuoz before zigzagging up through the sparse forest and joining the winter hiking trail that comes from Zuoz via Pizzet. Following this winter hiking trail, steadily uphill and with a fantastic view towards Samedan, you reach the Alp Es-cha Dadour, which awaits you with plenty of fine food for the big or small appetite. Shortly before the Alp, the trail branches off down through the forest, back to Madulain.

Author’s recommendation

Those who take the effort to pull up a toboggan can sledge down the trail back to Madulain.
