The challenging hiking trail begins at the school building in Simplon Dorf and crosses the Talbach (Chrummbach) on the bridge of the access road. At the end of the bridge, it branches off to the right, crosses the corridor road after a few metres and then climbs in many bends over Hobielestafel to Alpjerbidi. The Gondos Gorge opens before our feet. Even if it seems impossible at first glance, there is an easy mountain path through these rock walls. Its use, however, requires a head for heights and sure-footedness. Who doubts, rather take the way back via Hobielustaful to Simplon village. The mountain path leads in a north-easterly direction, initially almost flat, through the Alpjerwäng, until after about 700 m the short but steep zigzag path leads down to Alpjen/Egga. Here the path leads into an asphalted alpine road. On this little road you now descend to the stop "Alte Kaserne" at the Simplonstrasse.
