Heidi's Medium Trail on the Pizol offers just the right amount of challenge for anyone looking for a demanding but not too long trail.

Tour description

We take the cable car from Bad Ragaz to the starting point in Pardiel. Here we run along the well-maintained Heidi trail towards the Schwarzbüelhütte. This section has almost no difference in altitude and is therefore perfect for a leisurely start to today's trail run. At Alp Schwarzbühl, we turn right towards Vilterser Obersäss.

This is our next destination, which we reach on a great trail and through rough vegetation. Now comes a crisp ascent towards Vilterser Seeli. Passing an alp and the cross at Tagweidli, we manage just under 300 m of ascent. At the lake, we turn left again towards Pardiel. At the fork (made of wood - only described from one side) we turn right in the direction marked "Suntigweidsee".

This section of the trail is not recorded on all hiking tools, but is very well maintained. After a great hilly trail, we come to the Suntigsweidsee lake, which invites us to take a short rest. From here to the finish at Pardiel, you can once again enjoy the fantastic view towards the Rhine Valley. A forest path takes us back to the starting point. The cable car takes us back to Bad Ragaz.
