This wonderful circuit boasting stunning vistas takes us from the Prättigau valley over the Furnerberg along single trails and pleasant tracks past the Trimmiser Alp down into the Rhine valley around Chur and then gently back to the valley of Prättigau.
After setting off in Grüsch at the valley station of the Grüsch-Danusa mountain railways we follow the route along riverside paths and pleasantly undulating single trails we track the course of the Landquart river. From Schiers we continue along flat and pleasant sections to Pragg Jenaz. This is where the steep, asphalted ascent to the picturesque mountain village of Furna begins. It is well worth stopping at the pretty little church to take in the stunning panorama of the Rätikon range.
From Furna we continue upwards along the mountain road, through the skiing area of Grüsch-Danusa, to the Alp Rona. This is the start of the wonderful single trail that takes us through the hilly terrain on a fast-flowing route. At the pretty hamlet of Scära the trail leads on to the mountain pasture and from here it plunges very steeply downhill to the alpine track in the direction of Stams. We then continue on a pleasant track through Stams, the picturesque cluster of pasture huts, then down a steeper asphalted road through the villages of Says and Trimmis to the beautiful Rhine river.
The route briefly takes us along the banks of the Rhine to Zizers and then on to Igis and the fine sight of Schloss Marschlins. At Ganda the valley steadily closes in as it takes us through the narrow Chlus along flat and pleasant tracks back to Grüsch in the Prättigau valley.
Accessible from May to October.
