We start the hike at the lighthouse on the Oberalp Pass. On the first section, up to the junction at point 2056, we travel with the Tomasee migratory birds, and then with those heading towards the Maighelshütte. Below the hut, however, we turn right to the Lolen Pass, which is called Pass Tagliola in Romansh.

The Lolenpass is a pleasure. The valley slopes gently to the west. The stream, which is initially just a trickle, receives more and more water and forms mossy areas and small lakes. We reach the first level of the valley and leave the stream to descend in an arc to an alp. From the second level of the valley a zigzag path leads down into the Unteralptal. We are sent back and forth a total of 48 times until we reach the bottom of the valley.

We continue our hike on a road towards the Vermigelhütte. However, we save ourselves the climb to the hut and switch to the hiking trail to the Maighelspass. Things are looking up again. We overcome the approximately 500 meters in altitude at a leisurely pace. On hot days, the reward is a swim in the lake in front of the Maighelspass.

We treat ourselves to a little thrill with the Piogn Crap. We can cross the wild Rein da Maighels in one step, because the water forces its way through a narrow gap in the rock. We see the Maighelshütte in front of us and we are happy to take a five-minute climb to enjoy a beer on the terrace. From the hut we hike back to the Oberalp Pass.


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


Fairtrail: Hikers share the trail with mountain bikers on certain sections.


Binoculars: We wander through Capricorn territory


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.
