The Outdoor Fitness Trails in the Heidiland holiday region comprise more than 30 uniformly signposted running routes from a total of 10 stations, making it one of the largest open-air fitness parks in the Alpine region. The Quinten Trail is one of four running trails around the Walenstadt station.

The starting point for this 8.7 km long trail is the info point of the Walenstadt station at the Schifflände (425 m above sea level). The first few meters run along the lake and the playground. After this short run-in, the steep but steady ascent begins on a well-maintained alpine road to Frachtina (800). During the whole ascent, you can see the Walensee and the Flumserberge again and again through the dense forest. Up to the Garadur clearing (829) you only have small, gentle climbs to overcome and have time to admire the imposing Churfirsten on the right. From Garadur, the trail leads over hill and dale on a partly technically demanding and steep hiking trail down to the lake (be careful when wet!). Even during the descent you always have a beautiful view of the lake and the surrounding mountains. As soon as you have completed the steep descent, the hiking trail becomes less demanding again and the landscape and topography become more varied. A little up - a little down - that's the further course of the trail to Quinten. It goes past vines, waterfalls, streams, rugged rock faces, small hamlets and through forests. And if you have your eyes and ears open, you will see - or at least hear - the many lizards that let themselves be warmed up by the sun. On the last section from Au to Quinten, the hiking trail becomes really wide again and leads past a beautifully situated barbecue area and spectacular rock faces.


The outdoor fitness trails run mostly on official hiking trails. For orientation on the way, therefore, the hiking trail signaling also helps.


Good and comfortable jogging equipment.
