Crest la Siala Map

The Crest La Siala is characterized by two things: rocky singletrack and stunning views. If you dare to take your eyes off the demanding trail and look around you’ll see the Vorab Glacier dominating the skyline above and the attractive town of Flims below.

Description

Beginning at the top of the gondola from Murschetg to Crap Sogn Gion, head north, starting with a steep descent down the valley. You then head along rocky singletrack to a stream which you follow along to the Plaun plain before heading back around to Murschetg.
