We start the hike at the lighthouse on the Oberalppass. On the first section, until the branch at point 2056, we are on the way with the Tomasee migratory birds, after those who aspire to the Maighelshütte. Below the hut, however, we turn right to the Lolenpass, which in Rhaeto-Romance language is called Pass Tagliola

The Lolenpass is a delight. Gently, the valley tilts westwards. The stream, which at first is only a gutter, receives more and more water and forms mossy areas and small soul. We reach the first valley stage and leave the stream to descend in an arc to an alp. From the second valley stage, a zigzag path leads down to the Unteralptal. A full 48 times we are sent back and forth until we reach the valley floor.

On a road we continue our hike in the direction of Vermigelhütte. However, we save ourselves the ascent to the hut and change beforehand to the hiking trail to the Maighelspass. It's going uphill again. We overcome the approximately 500 meters of altitude at a leisurely pace. On hot days, a dip in the lake, in front of the Maighels Pass, beckons as a reward. 

At the Piogn Crap we treat ourselves to a little thrill. We can cross the wild Rein da Maighels with one step, because the water is forced here by a narrow crevice. In front of us we see the Maighelshütte and a five-minute ascent we gladly accept to enjoy a beer on the terrace. From the hut we walk back to the Oberalppass.


At Piogn Crap, cross the Rein da Maighels with one step, which squeezes through a deep crevice.


From the Oberalp Pass we follow the white/red hiking trail towards The Tomasee-Rheinquelle, which first leads a few hundred meters along the pass route down the valley. A high-altitude trail now leads into Val Maighels. At the junction at point 2056, we continue in a southerly direction. We meet a road that leads to the Maighelshütte. Below the hut, however, we leave this road and choose the hiking trail in a southwesterly direction to the Lolen Pass. We stay on this way to the Unteralptal. Once we have reached another road, we turn uphill until we reach the junction to the Maighel Pass. Now we are back on a hiking trail that leads us on the left side of the valley past the Vermigelhütte. On the Maighelspass we descend into the Val Maighels and follow the path always out of the valley. Back at the small lakes, we follow the road further down the valley.  At the junction, which we know from the morning, we turn left on the hiking trail back to the Oberalp Pass.
