With the chairlift from Flims, via Foppa to Naraus and finally with the cable car Grauberg you can comfortably reach Nagens. From Nagens you have to pedal, on a gravel road up 500 meters to the Vorab glacier. The rocks and ridges polished by the ice of the Vorab Glacier form an impressive natural work of art - and are a perfect playground for mountain bikers.Now the long single trail descent begins. The path, marked as a hiking trail, winds through alpine rocky landscape and alpine meadows to Alp Sogn Martin. Here follows a short ascent to Mugels, from where you return to Flims via the Nagesn Trail (693) and Runca Trail (694).If you don't want to use a train, you can pedal on the signposted SchweizMobil Route 247 to the Vorab glacier under your own power.
