Mountains appear to be upside down here in the tectonic Sardona arena, as ancient rock has pushed its way forward over far younger layers. This is clearly visible with the sharp line around the Piz Segnas for example - and on the hike over the Fil de Cassons (Cassonsgrat) is nicely highlighted. Equally as magnificent are views looking south, with sweeping views over Surselva and across the crowning summits of the Graubünden Alps. The hike first leads along the upper Segnes plain over barren tundra soil – and most attractive flood plain traversed by a number of streams. At the foot of the Tschingelhörner a hairpin best describes the route – and on arriving at the top you discover the famous Martinsloch; rocky window to the earth through which the sun shines twice annually on the village of Elm beyond the mountain chain. The lower Segnes plain presents yet another great scenic attraction, with its mosaic of alluvial and marshy terrain, at the far side of which lays the Segneshütte hut. And from here it’s no longer far to your intended destination, namely Alp Nagens.
The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
