Starting in Ilanz, the path leads along the anterior Rhine (Vorderrhein) through a floodplain of national importance to Versam station in the heart of the valley. The Rhine gorge is characterised by 300 meter high sandstone walls. The Swiss Grand Canyon offers an extraordinary diversity of wildlife and vegetation. As there is no continuous trail between Versam and Trin stations, this section has to be covered by Rhaetian Railway. The footpath resumes at Trin Station. The path leads along the river bank to Reichenau, where the Vorderrhein (anterior Rhine) and Hinterrhein (posterior Rhine) rivers meet.
In and out with the Ruinaulta ticket: The Ruinaulta ticket offers you unlimited all day travel by train and postbus through the Rhine gorge.

Note(s)
Please note: The section Versam Station to Trin Station is not accessible by foot due to the terrain and must therefore be covered by Rhaetian Railway.
