R66 Jamtalhütte » Scuol
  |   7h20   |   22.1 km   |   686 m   |   1568 m

The Red Trail finally leaves Austria at the Futschöl pass. The last rocky sections again require the hiker to be sure of foot, before crossing the national border to Switzerland and descending into the Urschai valley. On the valley floor, follow the Tasna stream on the left side. The stage destination of Scuol, situated on the Inn floor and famous for its baths, is reached via the Ftan terrace.

    Dernière et belle étape bien ensoleillée qui clôture mon périple 2018, en 27 étapes depuis Finkenberg.
    Vous pouvez en savoir plus sur mon blog "vivelaretraitesurlaviaalpina.blogspot.com"
    Assez longue, particulièrement la descente finale, mais pas difficile.
    Superbe paysage. Seul regret: je montai doucement jusqu'au Pass Futschöl, espérant jusqu'au dernier moment distinguer la Getschnerscharte traversée la veille, en vain, toujours dans les nuages!
    A Scuol, l'hébergement est très cher. Possibilité d'aller en Auberge de Jeunesse, tout près de la gare, y compris pour les vieux comme moi (53FS y compris le petit-déjeuner et la carte d'adhérent journalière), mais si vous voulez y dîner, il faut s'inscrire dès le matin!
    A l'année prochaine pour la suite!

    If you are in Ftan and you think you had enough, you can take the bus for the last 4 kms. The Youth Hostel is that yellowish cube of concrete near the station, that you can see from far.

    Pour ceux qui souhaitent ajouter un 3000m à leur Via Alpina, l'occasion est belle: dans la montée vers le Futschölpass, suivre le sentier qui part à droite vers le Kronenjoch. De là, un sentier sur la crête rejoins le Futschölpass en passant par le Grenzeckkopf qui culmine à 3048m. Chemin de crête peu difficile, néanmoins réservé aux personnes non sujettes au vertige et à emprunter uniquement par beau temps. Compter environ une heure et demi de plus que par l'itinéraire de base.

    Schöne Variante: Von der Jamtalhütte zur Heidelberger Hütte (Übernachtung), dann über die Furca Davo Lais nach Scuol (Bergstation La Motta). Dauer: ca.6.30h- in Scuol fanden wir ein bezahlbares, originelles B&B("Backpackerhotel"), Casa Valär,

    Rather than descending into pricey Scoul, I recommend staying in Ftan- a charming Engadin village. Pension "Chasa Allegra", 081-864-1957, has rooms with fabulous views, a kitchen & PC. (There's a grocery & several eateries in the village for dinner.) SFr 70 for a single room in 2012.

    If you search for a cheap accomodation in Scuol which also offers good food, I can recommend the local youth hostel.
    The hostel is next to the cable car's station and close to the train station.

    Coming from the Jamtalhuette, follow the sign "Abkuerzung Scuol" shortly before you reach Scuol to get to the cable car's station. cheers, martin
