From Ilanz (699 m above sea.M level) it goes on a paved road with a crisp incline to Ruschein (1166 m above sea level.M.). The view from Ruschein via Ilanz into the Valsertal is a first highlight of the route. In Ruschein you will reach the Graubünden Bike Route No. 90 and traverse to Siat (1302 m above sea level.M.). Steep ramps alternate with relaxing flat sections. In Siat, some fountains invite you to fill the water bottles. The view of the Obersaxen plateau makes you forget the burning legs. To Darpagaus (1494 m above sea level.M) the road continues to climb before you reach the side valley Val da Pigniu on a rapid descent. The ascent towards Pigniu (1300 m above sea.M level) and up to the reservoir Lag da Pigniu (1447 m above sea.M level) is easy to master. The rock face with imposing waterfalls at the very back of the lake is so impressive that the detour to the very end of the gravel road is definitely worthwhile. Only a few hundred meters the route now leads back on the road before you turn right following the Graubünden Bike Route 90. On the other side of the river, first a natural road takes you, then a short intermezzo through forest and meadows to Andiast (1185 m above sea level.M.). From Andiast follow the main road to Waltensburg for a short time. The church in Waltensburg inspires in its interior with fantastic paintings and is certainly worth a stop. A gravel road with panoramic views and an imposing rock tunnel takes you to Brigels. From here it goes through typical villages of the Surselva to Trun. On the Rhine Route No. 2 you will get back to Ilanz.
