Trail running in the Pizol area

Tour description:

At Wangs, we take the gondola lift to Furt. From Furt, we pass the Water Forest in direction Fürggli. The first section is only slightly cropped , which is ideal for warming up. Then, we progress in a zigzag course up to Fürggli. The magnificent view over the Churfirsten compensates for the first hardships. Then, the trail descends towards Untervermii. From here, it follows a forest road to Obervermii and a mountain trail to the highest point of the tour, Garmil. On Garmil, we can expect a beautiful view over the entire Pizol area and the Rhine Valley, as far as Lake Constance. Next, a great trail is awaiting us, leading us to the old Alp Gaffia. From there, we walk below the mountain station of the chairlift in the direction of Furt. Passing the Berghotel Gaffia, it's continuously downhill towards our destination. Relax in one of the restaurants and enjoy the delicious offerings before taking the gondola back to the valley to Wangs.

Tip: If you want to spend less energy, you can run on the alp meadow from Fürggli directly to Garmil.
