The toboggan run starts east of Tschlin. After about 30 minutes on foot, you reach the junction towards Martina and thus the starting point of the panoramic sledging trail. Along the way, picturesquely situated benches invite you to rest and enjoy the wintry view. In a large bend at Balsarom, the trail enters the forest of the same name with faster sections. After the third bend, you reach the winter hiking trail between Martina and Strada and follow it to the right or westwards for about 750 metres. From here, the toboggan has to be pulled for a few metres to then be able to ride the fast-paced final section. From the hamlet of Chaflur, you slowly but surely approach the end of the trail, which is located in front of the bus stop Strada i. E., Cuncalada. From the first bend to the right, the path becomes steeper.

Be careful at high speed because of the narrow bends and of winter hikers you might meet on the path.
