Description

The starting point of the hike is at the Fürstenwald, which can be easily reached with the city bus line 2 from the city. The hike first follows the wide forest road towards Mittenberg. About halfway through, the hiking trail branches off to the left to the Rote Platte. The path becomes a trail and you dive deeper into the forest. Finally, you can see the Red Plate from below, before the steep climb up there. The climb can be quite slippery after rain or snow. The final ascent to the summit as well as the summit itself is exposed and only recommended for sure-footed and vertigo-free hikers. The view from the summit of Chur and the Rhine Valley, however, is simply breathtaking. The descent is on the same route as the ascent.
