Fun for bikers and freeriders

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 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 stream Flem . 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

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. 

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 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. 

Uaul la Runca

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.
