While at higher altitudes there is at best already snow, the trails in the valley are still free of snow. Our interactive snow depth map helps you to plan your tour. Here you can see at a glance at www.flims.com/schneesituation where you can already expect snow on the paths and trails and where you can still be on the road without getting cold feet. 

 

The Runca Trail has been awarded the label "Flow Country Trail" by the IMBA (International Mountain Bike Association). With a length of 6 kilometers, the Runca Trail is one of the longest flow country trails in Europe.

The Runca Flow Trail from Naraus to Flims is of medium difficulty and offers plenty of variety for experienced riders as well as beginners.

The Runca Trail leads from Naraus to Flims and combines pump track and northshore elements with wild nature. You start at the Flims valley station. From there, two chair lifts take you via Foppa to Naraus for the start.

The trail is aimed at all bikers who are light to medium in the difficulty range. Enthusiastic bike beginners cruise over simple obstacles such as scooters - whereas experienced freestylers hunt with speed over more demanding jumps. The numerous pump track, northshore and dirt elements make the Runca Flow Trail a first-class experience for all mountain bikers.

The new riding surface and the many constructions provide a "flowing" trail with good grip even on wet tracks. And if the numerous corners, wallrides and drops are too tricky for you, you can safely avoid all obstacles on the "Chicken Lines".
