Description

West of the starting point Flums, the castle ruin Gräpplang is perched on a hill. The route leads past the ruin and along a little-used side road over the hamlet of Fäsch to Bergheim. Now follow the mountain road to Tannenheim before finally turning left to Cafrida. The well-known ski and hiking area Flumserberg has already been reached.
At Cafrida you follow the nature trail, which later joins the mountain route to Prodalp. The Prodalp plateau with the beautiful raised bog offers a magnificent view of the Sarganserland and the Churfirsten. The mountain restaurant has a large sun terrace and is the ideal opportunity for a stopover before continuing on the forest road to Panüöl.
In Panüöl an impressive mountain panorama opens up and the onward journey to Alp Fursch is a real pleasure. The subsequent downhill through the Furschwald is challenging, especially in wet conditions. Continue along the Schilsbach, which is crossed at Bildbrugg. On a flowing forest trail you reach Portels and shortly afterwards you reach Flums again.

Geheimtipp

On the Alp Fursch a small Beizli is operated. A stop here is mandatory.
