The outdoor fitness trails in the Heidiland holiday region comprise more than 30 uniformly signposted running paths from a total of 10 stations and thus form one of the largest open-air fitness parks in the Alpine region. The Geissegg Trail is one of three running trails around Valens station.
The starting point for this 4.2 km long trail is the info point of the Valens station at the Postbus station of the Valens Clinic (915 m above sea level.M). All three trails lead first past the school, mini golf course, church and shop, up to the road that leads to Vasön. Hardly on the main road, the trail turns right onto a narrow hiking trail, which after a few meters turns into a wide, well-developed alpine road. And from here it gets really exhausting and steep! Partly past meadows and through mixed forests it goes below Canova (1170) only uphill! Up to the Schindelboden (1187), the Geissegg Trail runs almost exclusively straight through partly dense forest, over small streams and pastures. Once at the very back of the valley at the Geissegg, the equally steep descent through the forest begins, always along the Mülitobel (attention slip danger in wet conditions). From the two old and spectacular bridges, which you cross during the descent, you have a spectacular view into the narrow, up to 100 meters deep gorge. Up to the modern - but no less imposing Tschennerbrücke (933) the trail runs along the old road, which once led from Valens to Vasön. On the last section back to the info point at the Valens Clinic, you pass a wooden sidewalk that follows the road.
The outdoor fitness trails run mostly on official hiking trails. For orientation on the way, therefore, the hiking trail signaling also helps.
Relax after your sporting performance in the public thermal bath of the Valens Clinic, where you bathe in the famous Bad Ragaz healing water.
