From the parking lot Rellerli the loop starts on a paved mountain road up towards "Grossi Vorschess". The path continues on a winding and rather steeper gravel road up to the mountain "Plani" followed by the loop around the "Planihubel" and then left to the panoramic mountain Rellerli.

 

The technically rather demanding descent starts on the right of the toboggan run (no longer in operation) along the hiking trail to a mountain hut. There the path passes right and continues on to a gravel road. Then turn right and at the next mountain hut turn left and shortly afterwards turn sharp right onto the hiking trail. The route follows the winding and scenic single trail further into the valley. Shortly before arriving in Schönried, the trail turns sharp right again, along the small brook to the "Alte Strasse" and from there back to the Rellerli parking lot.

Author’s recommendation

Connect the tour with a little pick nick on the Rellerli.

In Schönried there are many restaurants where you can enjoy lunch or dinner after the tour.
