The Alpenrösli Trail starts on the Heid in Klosters Platz and leads first uphill over Madrals and Pardels to the highest point of the tour - the beautifully situated mountain restaurant Alpenrösli. Here it is recommended to enjoy the view on the sunny terrace and to fortify yourself with fine delicacies. Strengthened, the trail goes down to Riedmad and then slightly up again to the Talbach. In the last section, the trail leads along the Talbach back to the starting point, where the beautiful snowshoe tour ends after about 2.15 hours. 

Author’s recommendation

At the starting and finishing point there are public parking lots as well as a bus stop (Kath. Kirche, Klosters).
