Schesamurbruch-Tschengla | Bürserberg

From the Bürserberg municipal office hike in the direction of the Matin parcel, there at the Einhornbahn I over the meadow path into the forest and following the toboggan run to the fork Zwischenbäch. There turn left and through a forest path and continue across a meadow, past the Paterno sheep farm onto Tschenglastraße. From there follow the road to the left until after the bridge over the Schesamur quarry. This quarry is the largest in Europe. After the bridge turn right and follow the signposted path along the Schesamurbruch in the direction of Burtscha Alpe. The first part leads along the Schesamurbruch through the forest and then ends in a forest road. Follow this forest road to the Burtscha Alpe and then turn right along the upper edge of the Schesamurbruch to the Fuchsbau ski hut.
