Starting at the train station in Waldshut, bike towards the boardwalk of the river Rhine. Along your way you will pass many sights of Waldshut. Now follow the river downstream until you reach Dogern, where you cross the river and enter Switzerland.
The trail leads further along the south side of the river through the Swiss canton Aargau, where you will have many opportunities to stop and take a break. You will eventually get to a hamlet called Rheinsulz, from where you should follow the trail towards the Jura Mountains of Aargau. Continuously ascending, the trail now leads through woods and meadows and becomes significantly more challenging than the first part. On your tour you will get to various hamlets and observation points with a great panorama. Definitely worth a visit is the grotto of Lourdes, which you will get to on your way to Leuggern.
At this point the challenging part of the tour will be over. You'll reach the hamlet Klingnau and its reservoir, which is known for its biodiversity. The trail continues past the reservoir along the river Rhine until you reach Koblenz, where you cross the river to get back to Germany. Now continue until you get back to where you started.
During the tour you will have to cross busy roads, please be careful.
