The hike starts from the village of Binn, famous for its minerals, in the heart of the Binntal landscape park. The path leads from the church down to Ze Binne and the Twingischlucht, once the centrepiece of the trade route from Grengiols to Binn and over the Albrun pass to Italy. Binn has only been reachable the whole year round since 1964, when the 2-km tunnel was built.
The tunnel portal is reached with the historic road high over the wild romantic gorge. The trail now descends to the Schärtbrigga (Roman Bridge). On the other side you go up through the tranquil forest to the «auf dem Blatt» chapel. The path continues to the picturesque hamlets of Hockmatta and Weiler where there is a monument commemorating a huge avalanche, which in 1904 destroyed the hamlet of Mühlebach and swept 13 people to their deaths.
You shortly arrive at the village of Grengiols, which is famous for its unique wild tulip that blooms every May in the fields.
