    Description

    Among skilled bikers, Palfris is a household name. Palfris is the alp where a 1,300 meter single track leads down to Heiligkreuz, a town near Sargans.

    The tour starts in Flums, and the ride to Berschis gives you a bit of time to warm up. From there, things really get going: the route snakes through curve after curve to the spa and then on to Alp Gastilun. It is recommended to take a detour to the slope of this alp, where there is an excellent view of Walensee lake. The route then leads uphill on a singletrail to the Alpeli and on to the Palfris mountain lodge. This makes an ascent of 1300 meters, which will become a downhill singletrail ride. The descent begins directly below the restaurant and leads along the hiking trail signs to Alp Hinterspina. At this point the route becomes quite steep, leading through two cliff formations on to Heiligkreuz. There is good reason that this is the most notorious descent in Eastern Switzerland. In comparison, the trip back to Flums is a rather pleasant ride along the Seez river.

    Alternatives:

    From Tschuggene Säss down the tarred road to the Rhine Valley and then back to Sargans and Mels.
