Heidis Medium Trail Map

Take the gondola from Bad Ragaz to the starting point at Pardiel.


Follow the well marked and maintained Heidipfad towards Schwarzbüelhütte. This section is almost completely flat and makes a perfect start into today's trail run. At Alp Schwarzbühl, take the trail to your right towards Vilterser Obersäss. You pass through rough vegetation followed by a crisp climb to Vilterser Seeli. Passing another alp and the cross at Tagweidli, you climb almost 300 meters. At the lake, turn left towards Pardiel. At the junction (made of wood – only labelled on one side) turn right into the path "Suntigweidsee". This trail section is not covered in all hiking apps but is very well maintained too. Soon you arrive at Suntigsweidsee, where you can find inviting beach chairs to relax and enjoy the view. Roll along a gentel forest trail back to the starting point Pardiel, before the gondola takes you back to Bad Ragaz.

Tip: On weekends and during holidays, many families visit the first part of the trail (Heidipfad). Start early or at noon to avoid the crowds and keep in mind to #sharethetrail
