Geological trail through the Zügen gorge

An insight into the geological development in the Zügen gorge, between Davos-Monstein and the "Bärentritt". Old valley road closed to motorcar traffic, set in cool shade due to the narrow, deep valley cutting. Above us, the Rhaetian Railway, which negotiates the gorge across viaducts and through tunnels. Carries on towards Wiesen, then continues on the nature trail to Filisur.

People who are familiar with stones and rock formations will walk through the mountains as if they were reading a book on geology.

Illgraben-Bhutan Bridge

Erosion caused the mountain to collapse and the vast, pale yellow and reddish rock basin to form, which becomes bigger every year. From the Grabenrad or the Illhorn (2,716 m) there are "fear inspiring" yet stunning views down into the Rhone valley.
