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 Walensee Trail is one of four running trails around unterterzen station.

The Walensee Trail is the royal tour of the Unterterzen station: The starting point for the 13.8 km long trail is the info point of the Unterterzen station on the lake side of the underpass to Unterterzen station (425 m.a.s..M). Along the turquoise blue Walensee, the trail leads on the paved beach path to Mols. Shortly after Mols, the Walensee Trail turns onto the sidewalk of the cantonal road, which leads you to Walenstadt station. Constant companions on this section are the imposing Churfirsten on the left. Once under the station, the trail follows the railway tracks for a few meters and then turns sharply right onto a bridge. The trail now leads under the motorway to the farm settlement Haggenriet and the military shooting range Äuli. Although already a few kilometers in the legs - now it really starts! On a well-developed dirt road follows the steep ascent through a small deciduous forest to the clearing Raischibli (538). This is followed by a short area and a short descent - to then climb steeply again to 666 m.ü.M. Afterwards you can recover again, because it follows a descent to Tisen (486), where you meet the Terzen-Trail. This is followed by the last, long ascent over the farm settlement Hamisfiu (632) - from where you can enjoy a breathtaking panorama - to below Oberterzen (665). From here it only goes downhill. Up to the Kammbach Bridge (560), the trail runs over open meadows. The last section to Unterterzen runs mostly through a partly dense deciduous forest along the Kammbach. Arriving at the cantonal road in Unterterzen, the underpass brings you back to the starting point below the railway line.


The outdoor fitness trails run mostly on official hiking trails. For orientation on the way, therefore, the hiking trail signaling also helps.


Depending on the weather, it can be very slippery in some places.


Normal jogging equipment, sturdy and comfortable footwear.
