This theme trail runs along the side of the valley above the Albula River from Surava to Alvaneu Bad. Enjoy broad views into the Albula Valley. Along the way you will pass 13 educational posts displaying fascinating details about the development of a mountain forest that defies the forces of nature. The forest can now develop undisturbed within the natural forest reserve because no trees have been felled there since 2008.

You will frequently come across bizarre rock formations along the Path of the Pioneers. These consist of travertine, a porous, ochre-yellow-grey rock. There is a picnic area with barbecue site near the Crap Furò pinnacle. And at the last post along the way as you are heading back along the Albula there is a unique attraction – the Arvadi sulphur springs, to which healing and alchemical abilities are attributed.
