Runca Trail in detail

Der Runca Trail ist einer der längsten Freeride Trails in Europa.

Naraus-Punt Desch

The Runca Trail begins at Naraus rail station at an altitude of 1,800 metres above sea level. A flat trail with its own corners and rollers takes you to the start of the flow country trail at Punt Desch. 

Punt Desch-Startels

It gets started with a banked slalom, taking in Alpine meadows and skirting alongside the wild Flembach stream. There is a brief incline in the middle part, finally leading to a number of banks. Rapid sections allow fast-paced rides. 

Startgels–Plaun gl’Urs

Things really get going over the first 200 metres. Up and down, left and right, through Super Mario Land. This is followed by a more relaxed section through Plaun gl’Urs. Time to relax a moment and enjoy the little Alpine plateau. 

Val gl’Urs–Panoweg

An initial steep slope leads you into the forest. Banked turns accumulate, interspersed with undulations and jumps. The last climb takes you up to the Panoweg path, where you can enjoy the views and catch your breath, before composing yourself and preparing for the rhythm section. 


Find your rhythm in this section with drop-downs, rollers, tables, step-ups, corners and doubles. To work up a real sweat, this is followed by some more pumping as far as Restaurant Runca. The restaurant is equipped with tools and tubes and is the perfect pit stop for both rider and machine.

Uaul la Runca

After taking in the views, the rough terrain of the Flims landslide takes over the Runca Trail. The Runca Trail meanders through the open countryside on a North Shore trail (wooden trail) coated with sand-coloured paint and on a flow single trail. Now you’re just a few metres away from reaching the end of this unique trail.

Flow Country Trail

Did you know that the Runca Trail received the label ‘Flow Country Trail’ from the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) in autumn 2012? All obstacles can be rolled away and are positioned to enable virtually limitless improvement of biking skills. Whether you are making your first attempt at the trail or are already a seasoned pro, one thing is certain: this trail will stir your biking spirit.

  • Please reduce your speed on the side road, at bottlenecks and around corners.
  • Keep on your side of the road.
  • Do not ride alongside other bikers.
  • Remain on the standard route; do not take any shortcuts through Hotel Waldhaus Flims or across the fields.
  • Do not ride on the pavement.
  • Do not perform any bunny hops onto or from the pavement.
