Vorab-Grauberg

From the lovely village of Flims, the mountain bike will take you up to great heights. The very challenging Vorab tour to the glacier of the same name offers both a nature and a bike adventure.
The ascent to the Vorab Glacier is long, almost 1,500 meters in altitude in one go, from rich green forests far up into a rocky Alpine area. It starts at the base station of the Crap Sogn Gion cable car, where a well-constructed road runs up to Nagens. A gravel road from Nagens leads to the foot of the Vorab Glacier and even if only 500 meters in altitude are left, you are already at over 2,000 meters here, which makes the ascent a tad more challenging.

The descent back to Nagens runs along the same route you came up and there, you climb another little bit further up to the Grauberg station. From here you can see the Lower Segnesboden, part of the Tectonic Arena Sardona UNESCO World Heritage Site. The cauldron-shaped alluvial plain has been listed in the Federal Inventory of Fens of National Importance since 1996.

A cart path takes you down to the Segnes Hut and shortly thereafter you reach the Punt Desch bridge on a gravel road. This is where the well-known Runca Trail turns off, a downhill run built especially for mountain bikers which is also easily doable by less experienced riders. The Runca Trail continues to a small road right above Flims and now it’s just a hop, skip and a jump to get back to the starting point in Laax-Murschetg.
