You hike between the Maschgenkamm panorama restaurant and the mountain station of the Arven chairlift, around the panorama restaurant. For the first 250 m, a steep path leads down 60 metres in altitude to the Maschgenlücke restaurant. We recommend taking hiking poles with you. The next few metres are shared with the alpine athletes until the winter hiking trail turns off to the left. With a view of the Spitzmeilen area, the hiking trail leads over a small hill on which it is worth stopping briefly to enjoy the wonderful panorama. The trail continues through a quiet forest area and at the junction you choose the right path, on the left it leads to Prodalp. The trail then descends gently to the plain where the Panüöl alpine restaurant is located. From here you can continue hiking to Alp Fursch, to Prodalp or take the 6-seater chairlift back to the Maschgenkamm.
