Our tour starts leisurely at Disentis train station. We follow the SwitzerlandMobility Route 1 Alpine Bike downhill to Madernal. A bunker disguised as an alpine hut and tank barriers in the greenfield testify to the strategic importance that this place must have once had. We change the Rhine side and roll over Pardomat and Cumpadials to Surrein, where the church tower houses a large colony of bats every summer. But during the day, unfortunately, nothing happens here.

Now it gets sporty - up to Rabius and some hairpin bends beyond. At Campieschas we reach a hiking trail on which we pass the last meters to Sogn Benedetg. A visit to the unconventional chapel, built by Peter Zumthor, is a must. The restored remains of the old chapel, a few meters later, are also worth a visit. It is a nice place to rest. 

After Clavadi we drive to Con da Vitg. From here our skills are tested: The forest descent into the Val Russein is not without - especially steep! It is easier in the valley itself. On the road to the cantonal road we only need the brakes. Once at the bottom, we make a small turn over the old wooden bridge Punt Russein before we drive back to Disentis via Madernal on the same route.


Zumthor Chapel in Sogn Benedetg is open during the day


There are sliding sections in between


We drive from Disentis train station along the SwitzerlandMobility Route 1 Alpine Bike towards Ilanz. Once in Madernal, turn right onto the tarred road, but turn left onto the natural road before the bridge over the Rhine. This flows into a single trail at the power plant, which leads along the Rhine to Cumpadials. In Cumpadials we change to the right side of the river and drive past the B&B Resgia to Surrein. To Rabius we drive on the access road, cross the village in a north-easterly direction against the Val Rabius. . After a few hairpin bends, turn left onto a hiking trail, which later leads back into a road to Sogn Benedetg. Until Clavadi we let it roll again on a paved road. then follows a marked hiking trail to Val Rusein. At the road we turn left downhill, down to Punt Gronda. We cross the cantonal road and the railway line to Pardomat, where we come back to the SwitzerlandMobility Route 1 Alpine Bike and drive back to Disentis on the way we came.
