This challenging hike up to the hay huts of Tuass is worth the effort thanks to the fabulous untouched nature, steep mountain meadows and magnificent views of the Rhine Valley.

The hike up to Tuass starts at Neugrütt at the Mittagsspitze campsite in Triesen. After about 20 minutes, the trail branches off to the right and leads through the forest. The track then winds its way up via a series of switchbacks through the Magrüel pastures until it merges with a dirt road. A number of old wooden huts here serve as a reminder of how difficult haymaking was in days gone by. A few steps later hikers must choose between two paths. The more direct route leads via Blüemlertobel to Tuass. There is, however, an alternative route following the longer, steep mountain path up via many switchbacks through the beech forest towards Kemmi. The route continues past Gorn and Platta. After Platta the mostly flat hiking trail continues as far as Tuass. The route back initially leads along a trail towards Lawena. Once you reach the wide path, the route turns right and leads through the Lawenatobel to the pastures of Magrüel. From there, descend back to the Mittagsspitze campsite.
