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 St. Georgen-Trail is one of three running trails around flums station.

The starting point for this 6.3 km long trail is the info point of the Station Flums at the parking lot of the station (451 m above sea level.M). Still at the train station, before the bridge over the Seez, all three trails turn right onto the sidewalk along the stream, until the next bridge. After crossing it, you continue through inhabited area towards the football field. Only here do the trails separate. The St. Georgen-Trail and the 2-dörfer Trail continue behind the football field on a walking path along the Bächlein Schils - with a wonderful view of the castle ruin Gräpplang, the surrounding vines and the imposing Churfirsten. At the ARA (436), the trails follow a tarred road that leads over the railway bridge in the direction of Berschis. After the overpass, the trails separate. The St. Georgen Trail continues on the motorway overpass to the village entrance of Berschis (444). The trail now leads through the middle of the idyllic village. At the southern end of Berschis begins the steep ascent to the chapel of St. Georgen (588). The tarred road leads past the settlement of Golrina (500), along the forest to the parking lot with the information board to the chapel. Continue over a pasture and through a light mixed forest to the chapel high above the village. From up there you have a wonderful view over the valley and the surrounding mountains. The descent through the dense forest back to the settlement of Golrina leads past the Lourdes Grotto and is quite steep (beware of slipping in wet conditions). Back in Berschis you will find the 2-Village Trail. Together, the trails reach the motorway underpass in the middle of the industrial zone between Flums and Walenstadt, which leads back to the Infopoint at the station car park in Flums.
