The hike starts at the large information board west of the tunnel portal at the customs house la Drossa, right at car park 4 on the Ofenpass road and the Postbus stop Punt la Drossa (P4) (1706 m above sea level.M.). The first narrow path winds along the mountain flank into the air and then becomes increasingly wider. Soon the saddle between the Munt la Schera and the small, wooded Piz la Schera is reached. At the junction (1828 m above sea level.M), the route turns left towards the southeast and gradually continues to rise. Through the forest and over a long clearing, the path soon reaches Alp la Schera (2091 m above sea level.M.). From here, the route takes the same route back to Punt la Drossa. Variants are an extension towards Munt la Schera-Buffalora or a circular hike to Il Fuorn (see route «Munt la Schera»).
