We follow the small road which goes up to the Morasco Dam and coasts the Lake. From the start of the cableway a path begins with some still original stone-paved tracts which take us up to the Bettelmatt Alp in the area of production of the Bettelmatt cheese. From the Alp a rather steep path takes us to the Gries Mountain Pass. From here we proceed along the mountainside coasting the Gries Lake up to the Dam where a small service road begins and continues with two hairpin bends leading to a well-traced downhill path crossing Stoche, Altstafel, and Ladstafel. From here onwards we cross a torrent and coast it keeping on its left up to the Aarenäst bridge where we keep on its right for a small tract until we cross back to the other side on a bridge at 1592 m above sea level, thus following onwards on one last track leading us to the village of Ulrichen in the Goms Valley.
