From the Sporthaus bar, the first loop heads down the valley to Fußendraß and then goes up and down gentle inclines back up the valley to the hamlet of Quinzo/Kinzen beyond S. Giacomo/St. Jakob. The return route is mainly flat as far as the Sporthaus. Turn left at the Sporthaus where the Caminata/Kematen loop begins, which crosses the valley floor and passes the sunny slope to take you back to your starting point.
