Trail Running


The Engadine hiking trails cover about 500 kilometers of marked paths. They lead along the lakes, follow the "Via Engiadina" or go into the adjacent valleys. The variety of different routes makes Silvaplana and the local mountain Corvatsch a popular trail running region. Ambitious mountain athletes will find challenging routes up to Piz Surlej or Piz Julier. If you want to discover the most beautiful viewpoints while trail running, it is best to follow the Silvaplana Explorer-Map
