Trutg dil Flem

Crossing seven bridges

The award-winning Flims water trail leads you down from the source of the Flem stream in upper Segnesboden, past a unique ravine landscape to the town centre of Flims. You will cross seven bridges, some of them based on audacious designs by the famous bridge builder from Graubünden, Jürg Conzett. From here, you can savour views of the bizarre rock formations in the gorge of the Flem and take in the noise of the wild mountain stream. Those who like to take things easier can follow the course of the Flem down to the valley. More ambitious hikers can take on the ascent in the opposite direction.

Starting point–Segneshütte fork

If you want to walk the Trutg dil Flem from the mountain down to the valley, you start at the lower Segnesboden in the middle of the UNESCO-World Heritage Site Sardona near the source of the Flem. This is located at the northernmost point of the unique Segnesboden, which you can reach from the Nagens mountain station or the Alp Nagens shuttle station within approx. 1h 15 min. From the fountain, the water path leads you past the overwhelming waterfall of the Segnas Sura. From there you have a wonderful view of the Tschingelhörner with the Martinsloch and the Glarus main shift, before continuing to the nearby Segneshütte.

UNESCO-World Heritage Site


Segneshütte fork–Startgels

Along the way, you can take a breather from the hike at a number of mountain restaurants (Segneshütte, Startgels) and recharge your batteries with a light snack. From the Segneshütte mountain lodge, you can venture to the upper bridge along the Punt Muletg sper l’Aua plain on the descent. The artificial stone slabs lie almost naturally across the Flem. From here, the trail leads you back and forth along the left and right sides of the gorge, which you cross three times over the upper bridge, the durable wooden bridge and the Pilzfelsen bridge. Here, you can enjoy a wonderful view into the bizarre rock formations of the gorge.


After the Startgels restaurant, the trail leads through wooded slopes across the two wooden bridges Taschlims and Punt da Max. From here, the trail mostly runs alongside the Flem. Looking at the two bridges, you can see how the architect tried to integrate them into the surrounding landscape as well as possible. Before you reach the Foppa mountain restaurant, you will cross the stream using the high waterfall bridge made from Vals gneiss rock just beneath two waterfalls.

Foppa–Flims base station

From the Foppa mountain restaurant, the trail leads you down to the end of the gorge, where the final bridge – the wooden Muletg bridge – is located. Once you cross this bridge, you will complete the final part of the trail through the Flims forest, which could well be the set of a fairy-tale film. From here, just the final few metres back to the Flims base station via the Runcs car park fork remain.
