Tour description

This tour takes us past a ruggedly romantic river landscape to the international historic landmark of the Salginatobel Bridge. The elegant arch bridge spans the Salgina Gorge at a height of more than 90 m.

The tour begins in Schiers and initially takes us down a flat gravel track as we follow the bed of the Schraubach river. The Schraubach itself represents an inexhaustible reservoir of gravel and sand. The trail winds its way through the ruggedly romantic river landscape. The tour then climbs gently up to the old sawmill. At the old mill the trail branches off into a steep section of around 1 km until we reach the mountain village of Schuders. This is the perfect spot to take a break and visit the pretty little church.
Next up is the downhill section to the historic landmark of the Salginatobel Bridge. There is a platform from which to admire this feat of civil engineering. The elegant arch bridge spans the Salgina Gorge at a height of more than 90 metres. After our visit of this impressive structure we continue on our route along an asphalted mountain road through the hamlets of Pusserein and Lasein, along beautiful pasture and forest sections, towards Fanas.
Above Fanas the route alternately takes us along forestry tracks and single trails, all of which are easily accessible and in good condition. The single trail down to Grüsch is particularly exciting and fast-flowing. From Grüsch the trail levels off as we continue along field tracks and riverside paths along the Landquart river back to Schiers.


Accessible from May to October.

  • Der Weg durch das Schaubachtobel war aufgrund von Unwetterschäden im unteren Teil nicht befahrbar. Auf einer Strecke von ca. 800m muss das MTB an div. Stellen durch den Fluss getragen werden. Wasser ca. knietief. Wer nasse Füsse nicht scheut kein Problem

  • Schöne Tour! In Schuders war Restaurant Post geschlossen. Zum Glück haben wir im Gaisschära eine feine Gerstensuppe mit sehr persönlichen Bediehnung bekommen. Sehr zu Empfehlen - Gasthaus Gaisschära Schuders
