The challenging hike starts in the small mountain village of Trin Digg and leads via Ransun down into the Rhine Gorge to the Versam/Safien train station. From the station, the trail leads uphill to the Islabord viewing platform, where you can enjoy a beautiful view over the Rhine Gorge.  From Islabord the trail leads via Versam village to the viewing platforms Spitg and Zault back to Trin Station. Crossing the spectacular Hägebrücke bridge, you will experience a breathtaking view of the Rhine. After about 45 minutes you return to the starting point Trin Digg.Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
