This tour opens up a magnificent view of the imposing Rhine Gorge. From Bonaduz, the route leads through beautiful forest paths into the Rhine Gorge and back again.
Distance 13.3 km
The best place to start this mountain bike tour is in the village of Bonaduz, which together with Rhäzüns forms an actual high plateau. Bonaduz is also the gateway to the Rhine Gorge natural monument. After you have crossed the idyllic forest landscape near Bonaduz on well-maintained forest paths, there follows an ascent on a road with little traffic, which leads to Sigl Ault with a view. A single trail soon awaits you, leading smoothly down to the panoramic road above the Rhine Gorge. The "Ruinaulta", as the gorge is called in Romansh, is one of the most magnificent and diverse landscapes in the Alps, created 10,000 years ago by a landslide. You now follow this gorge with a magnificent view, past the "Zault" viewing platform (a photo stop is recommended), before finally diving back into the woods and returning to Bonaduz on extensive forest paths.
