The Runca trail in Flims has become one of the most well-known descents for mountain bikers, but it’s actually also ideal as part of a panoramic tour.
Past the valley station of the Crap-Sogn-Gion cable car, you’ll be riding on a minor paved road through the village of Murschetg (part of Laax) and then climb up to Alp Nagens. From here, take the well-prepared alpine highway to the Nagens mountain restaurant and treat yourself to an extensive break. Just past the inn, start riding up to the mountain station of the Grauberg cable car, the highest point of the route. This is where you’ll start a fast descent on the ski slope. Caution: deep gullies frequently pop up without much warning. When you reach the Punt Desch bridge, you’ll join the Runca Trail and follow it downhill to the entrance of Flims village. Follow the marked bike route back to Laax Murschetg.
