Details

Description

The starting point is the port and market town of Walenstadt. The route leads briefly over the Swiss Army's weapons field before it climbs and leads along beautiful paths behind the striking hill called "Raischibe". The first ascent is done when the view of the Walensee becomes clear on the right. Now the route, which runs on this section practically continuously on natural roads, falls and climbs through forests, meadows and agricultural farmsteads. Again and again, the Walensee and the Churfirsten come into view on the way and offer incomparable panoramas.
Once at the highest point, a natural road branches off to the right, which leads the next 400 meters steeply downhill - a test for drivers and brakes. After crossing the Murgbach, a leisurely rolling out follows along the lake back to Walenstadt. On the way, the lidos in Murg, Unterterzen and Mols invite you to a refreshing lake bath.

Geheimtipp

Murg is home to the third largest chestnut forest in Switzerland. The mild climate and the acidic soil favor the growth of the sweet chestnut.

Sicherheitshinweis

It may occasionally happen that the route is closed shortly before Oberterzen due to shooting operations at the Oberterzen shooting range. In this case, Oberterzen must be bypassed via Nejenberg - Getzi - Tisen - Hamifiu - Boden.

Ausrüstung

For this tour a light bike equipment is sufficient.
