Bike tour Kalbermatten - Yo-Yo (Nr. 3)

The Matterhorn Express takes you up to Schwarzsee. From here, a gravel track takes you below the Matterhorn to Stafel (power plant) and over the Zmuttbach river to the other side of the valley. The single trail fun starts at this point.

The beginning of the bike trail is relatively flat and easy. There is only one short, tough climb.

When you reach the hamlet of Zmutt, the bike trail then leads onto the Yoyo Trail. There are some sharp corners here and towards the end, a few metres of ascent. Overall, this bike trail is very varied. Single trail experience is an advantage.

Bike tour Kalbermatten - Yo-Yo (Nr. 3)

Mit dem Matterhorn-Express fährt man hoch bis Schwarzsee. Von hier aus geht es direkt unter dem Matterhorn auf einer Kiesstrasse hinunter bis zum Stafel/Kraftwerk und über den Zmuttbach auf die andere Talseite. Hier beginnt der Singletrail-Spass.

Der Anfang des Bikewegs ist relativ flach und einfach. Es gibt einzig einen kurzen und intensiven Aufstieg.

Auf der Höhe vom Weiler Zmutt führt der Bikeweg zum Yoyo-Trail. Hier sind einige Male enge Kurven zu bewältigen und gegen Ende müssen ein paar Höhenmeter erklommen werden. Alles in allem ist der Bikeweg sehr abwechslungsreich. Singletrail-Erfahrung ist hier von Vorteil.

Bike tour Kalbermatten - Yo-Yo (Nr. 3)

Montez au lac Schwarzsee avec le Matterhorn-Express. À partir de là, descendez directement en contrebas du Cervin par un chemin de gravier jusqu’à Stafel/centrale électrique en passant par Zmuttbach pour rejoindre l’autre côté de la vallée. C’est là que vous allez pouvoir commencer à vous amuser sur un single trail.

Le début de l’itinéraire VTT est relativement plat et facile. On n’y rencontre qu’une seule pente courte, mais raide.

À la hauteur du hameau de Zmutt, le sentier mène au Yo-Yo Trail où vous trouverez quelques virages serrés et, à la fin, quelques montées bien raides. Il s’agit dans l’ensemble d’un itinéraire très varié. Ceux qui ont l’expérience des single trails s’y sentiront plus à l’aise.

The whole Nr3 Yo Yo is a great trail with fantastic views of the Matterhorn. Mostly s2 type track but a few s3 rocks so be prepared to carry the bike occasionally if thats not your thing. See the pics.
