We hike near the Rhine - the lapping of the water always accompanies us. The first highlight is Disla, a picturesque village with typical local houses and various old crafts. Always on the Swiss Museum Day the cheese dairy, the flour mill, the sawmill and other buildings are opened.  The former blacksmith's shop has become a cute restaurant where you can get an ice cream for the children. Further on the way leads us to Madernal where we meet a relic from former times: A tank barrier. We stay on the left side of the Rhine and after the Russein hydroelectric power station we change to a hiking trail through a fairy-like forest with mossy stones and old tree stumps. Part of the trail leads over a newly constructed wooden footbridge that has been artfully installed into the unstable slope.  Once we have reached the meadow in Plaun Petschen with its playground, fireplace, beach volley field and a small swimming lake, we settle in for a longer stay. We calculate about 20 minutes to the train stop in Sumvirg. From here the Rhaetian Railway brings us back to Disentis.


At the train station in Sumvitg there is a restaurant: Ustria dalla Staziun


If we change to the right side of the Rhine in Madernal, the whole tour is also feasible with a sporty stroller.


From Disentis train station we follow the natural road to Cavardiras to the bridge in Brulf. Here we turn left and walk to Disla. The Ustria Fravia is located next to the chapel, not directly on our hiking route. The trail junction for the planned hike is located in Disla in the middle of the village, about 200 m before the Ustria. In Madernal we get from the hiking trail to a road. We keep to the right on this road. Before the bridge we turn left again. At the power plant, the road ends and a hiking trail leads behind the building into the forest. After the forest we reach the bridge over the Rhine, which we cross. The playground and barbecue area is located just to the right after the bridge. To sumvitg railway station we take the road to Sumvitg. Observe the directions at the bridge. First comes Cumpadials, then we turn left up to Sumvitg. Below Sumvitg, the turnoff is to the right to the train station.
