An ideal hike for families. The children look forward to seeing the marmots and the fountain on Alp la Schera, while the adults enjoy the interesting flora, the numerous forest anthills and the magnificent view towards Livigno and Val da l'Acqua. The hike crosses mountain pine forests typical of the Swiss National Park with numerous trees lying on the ground and rotting.

Note: Dogs are not allowed in the Swiss National Park, not even on a lead. You can find more information on this and all the protection regulations at

The hike begins at the large information board to the west of the tunnel portal at the Zollhaus la Drossa, right by car park 4 on the Ofenpass road and the Punt la Drossa post bus stop (P4) (1706 m a.s.l.). The path, which is narrow at first, winds up along the mountain flank and then becomes increasingly wider. Soon you reach the saddle between the Munt la Schera and the small, wooded Piz la Schera. At the fork (1828 m a.s.l.), the route turns left towards the southeast and continues to climb gradually. Through the forest and across a long clearing, the trail soon reaches Alp la Schera (2091 m a.s.l.). From here the route leads back to Punt la Drossa along the same path. Alternatives are an extension in the direction of Munt la Schera-Buffalora or a circular hike to Il Fuorn (see route "Munt la Schera").
