Easy walk along the railway tracks, over lush meadows and through the prakry woods. Lake Grünseeli, surrounded by mighty fir trees is the perfect spot to stay for a while

Firstly, the path leads leisurely along the railway tracks down to the catchment lake, before it starts to slightly climb over lush meadows up to Furggaalp. A cozy restaurants offers you the possibility to have a drink and relax before the trail continues in the forest until you reach the higher situated Lake Grünseeli. From there one continues almost evenly below the mighty mountains. The forest opens up repeatedly and offers a wonderful view to Arosa and the facing side of the valley. After a descent, one passes by the Isel region and gets back to the starting point.
