Want to try out one of the longest flow country trails in all of Europe? Rookies will take on simple rollers, while pros can showcase their skills on banks and jumps. With its North Shore, dirt and freeride elements, the Runca Trail guarantees fun for freestyle-oriented bikers and freeriders. To ensure the trail is also accessible in poor weather, the wooden elements are coated in a sand-coloured paint so they are not slippery when wet.
Runca Trail open as of 21 May 2020. The chair lifts Flims-Foppa and Foppa-Naraus offer daily service from 6 June up to and including 25 October 2020. Please take note of the opening hours of the Foppa-Naraus chairlift. The last ride up to Naraus is at 5.15 p.m., the last ride down at 5.30 p.m.
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.
It gets started with a banked slalom, taking in Alpine meadows and skirting alongside the wild stream Flem . There is a brief incline in the middle part, finally leading to a number of banks. Rapid sections allow fast-paced rides.
The first 200 meters it goes down through the Super Marioland: a pump track in the middle of the flow trail. This is followed by a more relaxed section through Plaun gl’Urs. Time to relax a moment and enjoy the little Alpine plateau.
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 tables and corners before the crowning finale - the Kicker Line. Here you will find a section to take off with small and big jumps. Afterwards you ride relaxed to Runca. The restaurant is equipped with tools and tubes and is the perfect pit stop for both rider and machine.
After taking in the views, the rough terrain of the Flims rockslide takes over the Runca Trail. The Runca Trail winds its way through the rocks on flowing single trails to Flims.
