Description

The hike starts at the restaurant Campell in Sils i.D. A few meters from the restaurant, is the village church, where the ascent to High Rhaetia begins. The historic mule track leads under the walls of Ehrenfels Castle and climbs through the forest to Hohe Rätien (947 m). The early medieval church fort was later expanded into a feudal castle. The carefully restored castle complex is located on a panoramic rocky plateau high above the entrance to the Viamala Gorge.

Back to the incision at the castle hill, follow the road through the forest and over the meadows to Crap Carschenna (1,122 m). Enjoy the view over the Domleschg and the Heinzenberg. On the edge of the terrain, about 100 m north, you will find mysterious petroglyphs, which were only discovered in 1965. The symbols carved into the stone probably date back to the Bronze Age (around 1800 BC): circles, spirals, bowls, horses with riders and hem loads - a fascinating encounter with signs that are difficult to interpret.

Downwards you reach in an easterly direction via a comfortable driveway to Campi (castle complex) and over the forest path to Sils i.D.

Any hiking trail closures/restrictions or diversions can be found here.
