The hike offers fantastic views and leads past the Hahnensee, one of the most idyllic places in the Engadin.

At the bus stop Surlej "Parkplatz", the road leads to the houses at the edge of the forest. This is also where the hiking trail up to the Hahnensee begins. First on a wide natural road and then in a steep zigzag with breathtaking views of Lake Silvaplana and Lake Sils up to the idyllic moor lake. The trail continues up and down, more or less along the forest border, to Muottas da Schlarigna. Always in view is the view over the Engadin down to S-chanf. You pass very old stone pines and if you descend a short distance at the turnoff to Alp da Staz, you will come to the oldest stone pine in the Engadin. Before descending to Pontresina at the second junction, it is worth climbing to the Muottas da Schlarigna viewpoint. The descent to Pontresina leads through a beautiful Swiss stone pine forest.
