The Runca Trail is the classic single trail starting in Flims. The route becomes particularly interesting when you extend it from Flims to Tamins and incorporate highlights such as Lake Cauma or the Conn viewing platform into the route.

The tour starts with the chairlift ride to Naraus. The start of the descent leads for a little way along a gravel road until the actual Runca Trail begins at the Flembach stream. This varied route meanders fluidly to the Runca Höhe and along numerous good, wooden trails to the Waldhaus area of Flims. This is usually where the Runca Trail descent ends, but not in this version. Cycle on small gravel roads down to the idyllic Lake Cauma and then climb up to the Conn viewing platform with its wonderful view of the Rhine Gorge. Both places are ideal as a lunchtime stop-off before starting on the trip to Tamins. From Conn, you ride mainly on single trails to Pintrun, and then ascend a little way to Digg - from where you travel on the signposted mountain bike route to Tamins along a mix of trails and little gravel roads.Tip: Instead of taking the post bus in Tamins back to Flims, extend the tour to Chur. A wonderful singletrail hugs the left bank of the Rhine to the outskirts of Chur.

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

Author’s recommendation

Statt in Tamins bereits in Postauto zurück nach Flims zu steigen, setzt man die Tour fort bis nach Chur. Ein wunderbarer Singletrail schmiegt sich dabei entlang der linken Uferseite des Rheins bis an den Stadtrand von Chur.
