Description

From Flims, first head towards Caumasee, riding past the lake to Conn. Here you ought to take a detour to the observation deck, from where you can check out from above much of the later route that you’ll be riding through the Rhine Gorge. Now it’s time to head down Pintrun, back up to Digg, and then follow the signposted mountain bike route (260) to Tamins and then on to the hamlet of Campagna. Here, you’ll turn right and leave the signposted route behind, reaching the Bonaduz-Versam highway near a power plant. Cross the highway and climb up for a while on the forest road. On the left serpentine, keep to the right since the gravel road soon becomes a magnificent single track. This will take you high above the Rhine Gorge to Pastogn, where you’ll rejoin the official route (260). Now take the serpentine trail, but only to Versamer bridge. Now it’s time to ride up the highway to Versam. Stay on the road towards the rail station, taking a right at the shooting range onto a steep and challenging trail down into the gorge. This is the actual start of this world-class trail through the gorge. As you ride upstream, stay on the south bank of the river, where after several ups and downs you’ll reach the rail stations at Versam and Valendas, and then finally onto a flowy riverbank trail with some tricky passages to Castrisch. Take a left before the railway underpass and follow the trail to Illanz, a fun and flowy culmination to this unique single trail route. You can then catch the postbus back to Flims.

Note:
In 2014, Flims has issued a recommendation on the routes from Mutta Sura to Conn and throughout the Rhine canyon that mountain bikers should not drive these trails between 10 am and 4 pm.
