The third stage is the Pièce de Résistance of the Surselva hut tour. But the key data are more frightening than the stage actually is – especially since the route can also be significantly shortened at the end.

Initially, you roll down from Vrin to Surin and follow the signposted mountain bike route via Surcasti to Uors. Here it is worthwhile to take the Postbus for the ascent to Vals. This saves you "only" 320 meters in altitude, but still! Because on the third stage of the hut tour Surselva it is important to save energy for the upcoming ascent to the Tomülpass. To do this, follow the signposted mountain bike route (Alpine Bike), first on asphalt, then on gravel and after the ridge on a well-drivable single trail. On the last section after Alp Tomül, a pushing passage is always announced, unless you have strength in your calves like Nino Schurter – or then an e-bike. But the pushing is not in vain, because the upcoming section through the Safiental is one of the longest mountain bike runs in the Alps with almost 40 kilometers. The first part leads along the historic muleteer route down to Safien Thalkirch. Now you change to the little-used road and later pass the village of Safien Platz. At the Rainmatte you leave the road, follow the stream Rabiusa, pass the reservoir and then climb a few meters on the right side of the valley to finally reach the old Safierstrasse. Today only a single trail is left of the road, so for mountain bikers a fantastic section through enormously steep terrain. The route here is interspersed with small tunnels. Later, the path widens again and on a small road you roll out the valley to the Sigl Ault.

At Sigl Ault, the wheat is separated from the chaff on the final stage of the Surselva hut tour: those who have no strength left roll down to Bonaduz and board the train here for the return journey to Chur. But the original route still has a few highlights to offer. The section after the Sigl Ault is an unparalleled trail treat and leads high above the Rhine Gorge to the Versamerstrasse. Here is the next opportunity to finish the stage with the flat ride to Bonaduz. But here, too, there is still something to experience on the original route, because the upcoming single trail section past the ruins of Wackenau is no less attractive than the previous trail over the Rhine Gorge. In this way you get to Reichenau and get on the train back to Chur. So much for the recommended version for the third stage of the Surselva hut tour.

If you still don't have enough in Reichenau, follow the cycle path from Tamins in the direction of Chur and then change to the trail near the left bank of the Rhine before Felsberg. This trail leads to the Rossboden army compound, from where you roll along the cycle routes to Chur train station.
