This hike starts at the Malans train station. You walk along the main road to the post office square, where you follow the hiking trail sign in the direction of Jenins and cross the winegrowing village of Malans with its old stately houses and its less appealing new housing developments to the valley station of the Älpli cable car. From there you hike parallel to the road along a beautiful forest path in the direction of Jenins. The path leads over a stream to a playground and then immediately over a stream again. Right after that, the regular hiking trail would branch off upwards. However, this is not possible with a wheelchair. Therefore, you follow the road with little traffic the short distance to Jenins. Through the beautiful winegrowing village of Jenins, you walk along the village street until you reach the parking lot at the entrance to the village. Here a path branches off to the left up towards Rofels, a hamlet above Maienfeld. In Rofels, you now have the option of taking the path via the nearby Heidi village, which is popular with tourists. However, the access path is very steep. Alternatively, one can follow the road to Maienfeld. In both cases, you have to go down the Bovelgasse towards Maienfeld at the end, which is not attractive because the road can be very busy depending on the weather and time of day.
