Foxtrail

Two trails lead to a tricky route search. On the 3 to 4-hour mountain route «Muntanella» from Churwalden via Heidbüel, the teams have to manipulate the weather and plunder the cheese stock to get the necessary hints. The shorter Heidsee lake trail «Anda» (about 2 hours) with underwater messages and controllable waterfalls provides much fun and adventure.
