From Splügen (1458 m above sea level) follow the Rhine towards its source. Via Medels and Nufenen you’ll ride through the Rheinwald to the Posterior Rhine (1620 m above sea level), the oldest Walser settlement in Graubünden. From the Posterior Rhine it’s not far to the shooting range. During the week, the trip ends here, but on the weekends, you can reach the valley via a natural road in the direction of the Rheinquellhorn. On the other side of the Rhine, the route leads down the valley on a dirt road. Via the old Landbrugg, you’ll return to the village Posterior Rhine. If you like taking the easy path, take bicycle route no. 6 to Nufenen. Riders who are interested in a more technical road should tackle the meadow path on the other side of the Rhine. From Nufenen the cycle route no. 505 "Rheinwaldroute" leads down into the valley. You’ll make your way back to Splügen (1458 m above sea level) while riding along the Posterior Rhine through the valley floor of the Rheinwald.
