    Tschamut to Sedrun in the Surselva Valley

    Tschamut - Milez - Sedrun

    Tschamut to Sedrun in the Surselva Valley

    Tschamut - Milez - Sedrun

    Hiking season in the Surselva between the Oberalp Pass and Disentis is probably pretty much finished by mid-October, but the unusually long warm weather in Autumn 2015 was ideal for this relatively non-strenuous hike along the Southern flanks of the mountains, giving us the most of the sun exposure for this time of year.

    Panorama views up and down the Surselva Valley from the Toma Lake Basin (Source of the Rhine) in the West to way past Sedrun in the East are bound to be even more spectacular in spring or summer.

    Starting point of the hike is the train station at Tschamut, which lies almost 50 m higher than the tiny hamlet itself. From here you can follow the paved zigzag road to the scattering of vacation homes at Milez, or if you are adventurous, take a shortcut up the hill along the "unofficial" hiking paths.

    From Milez there is a direct route down the paved road eastward to Sedrun, but the more interesting path heads North, and then eastward across a large moor area. This is a section of the Route 85 "Senda Sursilvana" which you can follow all the way to Sedrun, but we chose some alternate, sometimes unmarked trails to follow a lesser-trodden route, involving fewer upper and downhill sections. Either way, the route from Milez to Sedrun offers many grandiose views Eastward along the Surselva Valley.

    Our tour can best be repeated by following the downloadable map.

    Route Description

    00:00 Starting point at the Tschamut Train Station (1702m). Follow the trail signs in direction of Milez. It you want to take the lovely unmarked trail, it heads up to the right about 10 minutes along the road.

    00:45 Vacation village at Milez. From here take the path North in direction of Sedrun.

    01:00 Cross the little bridge in the middle of the moor. Just past the moor area the official trail doubles back to the left and up the hill, but if you look carefully, there is an unmarked path going down and straight ahead. This level trail is a bit rougher but also takes you past a group of very quaint little cabins.

    01:20 Reach the cabins at Liet and shortly after get back on the official trail. Continue toward Sedrun.

    02:00 After walking North into a side valley, your cross a stream here, and make your way to the paved road. From here you can go uphill again along the official "Senda Sursilvana" trail, but we kept along the road to join a smaller, lower trail 10 minutes along.

    02:10 From the paved road there is a short but very steep portion that takes you up to the trail, continue until the train joins the "Senda Sursilvana" once again.

    02:30 Trail joins "Senda Sursilvana". Take the right trail toward Sedrun, but instead of staying on the road, turn off to the left a few minutes later onto a trail to approach Sedrun from the top. Keep following the signs that lead to the Sedrun train station.

    03:00 Reach Sedrun train station.
