The starting point of the circular tour is the community center in Lantsch/Lenz. From there, the trail leads through the residential quarter of Tgampi. The hike continues, partly on the nature trail, to the viewpoint Crap la Tretscha. There you have a magnificent view in the direction of Oberhalbstein, Albula valley and Landwasser valley. Stop at this beautiful spot and relax with a picnic on the benches. After a little refreshment, the path leads you through the forest of Bual before it branches off to the right in the direction of Roland Arena. Marvel at the hustle and bustle on the cross-country ski trails and at the shooting range before returning to the starting point.
