Via Alpina: Carschina Hut to St. Antönien Map

At only approximately two hours of walking time, this is one of the shorter stages of the multi-day hike. Following the Via Alpina R61, descend southwards from the Carschina Hut, going along the wide Moraine Stream towards the Carschina Alp. Jump onto the Valley Road and pass the Mittelsäss and Untersäss before following along the pretty Schanielbach Stream, eventually reaching the chocolate box village of St. Antönien.
