How well tourism and mountain farming go together at Lenzerheide is quite evident on a hike from Alp Scharmoin through alpine forests and past the impressive waterfall of Sanaspans over to the Alp of the same name. Without the relentlessly grazing cows, the pastures would soon turn into weedy patches, and there would be no fresh milk in the mountain cabins at Sanaspans. Hikers interested in the rich flora of this region will find informative panels about many of the plants growing along the way.
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.
