The starting point is the mountain railway Flims Dorf from where you can take the chairlift to Foppa. The pleasure hike leads along a sunny slope, with a wonderful view of the villages in the valley, the Flims forest and the Grisons mountains. Over glittering meadows, past Maiensässhütten, through spruce forest, the easy hiking trail leads to the hamlet of Scheia and to Fidaz. From Foppa to Flims there are various possibilities to stop in mountain huts and restaurants. From Fidaz you can take the road back to Flims village or use the local bus.
