From the village centre of Flims, you drive a few meters on the main road out of the valley until a paved access road branches off to the right at the end of the village. Shortly after, this road turns into a gravel path, turn left and after a few meters a fluid single trail starts on the left, which you follow until you reach the gravel road above Lake Cresta. Follow this – now going slightly uphill – road. At intersections always take the ascending path. Finally, you will reach the Conn forest clearing with an excellent view of the Rhine gorge, the "Little Swiss Grand Canyon". After this, you will take a forest road to arrive at Lake Cauma, an idyllic mountain lake in the midst of dense forest. After a long relaxing break, you ride back to Flims via the small access road.

 

Alternatives: You can find countless single trails in the forest of Flims, which can be used as shortcuts or as additional loops. Simply give them a try - sooner or later in the forest trail network you will come to a point that you have previously passed or one at which you can easily orientate yourself.

Incidentally: Danny MacAskill and Claudio Caluori took a relaxing break at Lake Cauma in the "Home of Trails" video.

Safety information

 Im Flimser Grosswald hat es unzählige Singletrails, die als Abkürzungen und als Zusatzschlaufen benützt werden können. Einfach mal drauflos fahren, irgendwann kommt man im Wegnetz des Waldes immer wieder an einen Punkt, an dem man sich orientieren kann oder den man zuvor schon mal passiert hat.

Könnt ihr nicht noch die Pfeilrichtung ändern? Haben den Text nicht gelesen. Der Trail zum Crestasee wäre cool, wenn man ihn nicht hochfahren müsste.

Die Tour ist sehr schön, mit vielen Highlights. Jedoch würde ich sie in gegengesetzter Richtung fahren, da man ansonsten das Bike bei der Felsbachschlucht schieben muss. Die Strecke würde ich auch nicht als leicht einordnen, sondern als S2 mit einigen Wurzel Passagen.

Haben die Tour verlängert und sind noch nach Conn „Il Spir“ gefahren, an den Crestasee und durch Flims. Sehr schöne gut fahrbare Wege, in dem ganzen Gebiet. Es geht viel hoch und runter...
