Graubünden Bike

Trail tolerance & trail rules

The trails and hiking paths in Graubünden have always been a meeting place and different sport types are available. A trail network of approximately 17,000 kilometres in a fantastic landscape is available in Grisons for your sports activities, be it hiking, trail running, Nordic walking, cycling or mountain biking. The signposted trail network comprises approximately 11,000 kilometres, part of which is designated as mountain bike trails. Mountain biking is also generally permitted on trails, provided that in individual cases an explicit prohibition is not indicated.

In view of the increasing number of users and new user groups, we in the Grisons are of the opinion that this situation can be managed only through understanding and tolerance between the users. Unfortunately there are reckless mountain users in all sport types, even if in our experience they are exceptions.

Have you had a very unpleasant experience with reckless mountain users? Report it to our information offices. This helps us to identify the guilty parties or to identify particularly critical mountain stretches.
