Note

Public transport

Public transport friendly

The Rhaetian Railway leaves Chur to Arosa and back at hourly intervals. Take the local bus at the train station Arosa. It brings you comfortably to Maran from where the starting point of the Lucky Stone Trails is located nearby.

Getting there

Once you arrive in Chur, follow the sign posts Arosa. At the village entrance, opposite the petrol station, turn right towards the golf course.

Parking

Parking spaces at the golf course (right next to the Lucky Stone Trail) are limited. It is highly recommended to park at the Ochsenbühl car park and to take the local bus to the golf course.
