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 Rhein-Trail is one of four running trails around bad Ragaz station.
The starting point for this 11.1 km long trail is the info point of the Station Bad Ragaz at the outdoor pool Giessenpark (503 m above sea level.M). The first few meters of the trail runs on a wide and well-developed gravel path through the forest to the Rhine. From there, the trail leads over the main road and then almost straight along the Rhine dam and the edge of the forest to the Tardis Bridge at Landquart (521). As soon as you have crossed the bridge, you return to Bad Ragaz on the other side of the Rhine. On this side of the Rhine, the road is firmer and sometimes even paved and therefore very popular with cyclists. Since the path is located a few meters from the water, it runs through the middle of a romantic mixed forest. However, the view of the Rhine is never completely blocked! After crossing the main road, which connects Bad Ragaz with Maienfeld, the trail continues along the dam to the level crossing at the Heidiland service area (504) On this section, the path is a bit narrower and the forest denser. Once crossed the Rhine, a short stretch of tar follows on the road that leads to the village. As soon as the railway bridge is crossed, however, the trail turns back into the forest and you get back to the info point at the Giessenpark outdoor pool via Rheindamm.
Depending on the weather, individual sections can be slippery.
In addition, the expressway must be traversed at one point near Bad Ragaz, so special care must be taken.
