Winter Trail Running: Innauen Route Samedan-La Punt
At the mouth of the Beverin River you switch from the left to the right side of the river. This is where the revitalized section of the Inn begins: the river dams were cut back over a length of about 2 km and the river bed was widened. In some places, the Inn is up to 200 m wide as it flows downhill. The work was completed in late 2020, but the Inn River seems to have its own ideas of what should happen here and continues to shape the landscape with its floodwaters and white waters. The area is a habitat for many endangered animal and plant species. Mobile panels with information about flora and fauna are provided year-round. The trail makes a detour to Isellas and then returns to the banks of the Inn River. It follows the river closely until it reaches La Punt. From the boundaries of the municipality of La Punt, the Inn flows between high dams again, straight as an arrow. It is not clear, however, how long this will last. Attempts are underway to relieve the river from its “girdle” and allow it to spread out. Make sure you stop at restaurant Krone in La Punt, where you can celebrate the end of the tour with a warm beverage. Regular bus and train service is available here to take you back to Samedan.
