HEIDI'S SHORT TRAIL
Trail running in the Pizol area
With the gondola, we float from Bad Ragaz to Pardiel. From there we follow the forest road along the beautiful Edelweiss steles until we reach the mountain station of the chairlift "Schwamm" (winter operation only). Getting here, we have already mastered the arduous ascent, and from here, follow the path to Suntigweidsee, where beach chairs invite you to linger. We pass the lake and follow the trail to the next fork (wooden signpost). Here, we take the path on the right towards the valley and after that towards the viewpoint Schwarzbüel, where an overwhelming panorama over Churfirsten, Rhine Valley and Bündner Herrschaft awaits you. Now, we run back on the trail towards Pardiel. On our way, we will surely meet one or the other goat. From Pardiel, we take the gondola lift back to the valley.
This trail is particularly suitable for new, returning, and pleasure runners.
Tip: We recommend a slow entry into this trail to prevent your muscles from acidifying during the first ascent.
