Trail shared by Tad Davis

The longest of 4 beautiful forested trails along side babbling brooks in Grachen.

Tad Davis

Features River/Creek · Views · Wildlife

Description

Start at the bottom end of the Bargji gondola and climb through a series of switchbacks. Soon the trail will flatten and follow the contour of the mountainside. The trail passes under the Grachen Hannigalp gondola and soon picks up a swift moving but small waterway beside the trail.

For a short distance, you'll overlap the Vita Parcours indicated by the exercise stations along the way. Continue south and the trail will become more technical and winding. It will cross a large mountain stream bed and will end at an intersection with another trail close to the Riedbach mountain stream.
