This fantastic Alpine trail starts at almost 3,000 metres above sea level. You need to be an experienced mountain biker to do this one.

Due to the altitude, this trail can only be ridden in the late summer season (depending on when the snow melts). The first section of Trockener Steg towards Lichenbretter heads along a stony, slow tech hiking trail. The challenge is to find a path through the rocky terrain. The section of the trail to Furgg station is really wild and you hardly ever see any hikers.

After Furgg station, the trail heads down to Furi. This section is less technical than the previous one, although it is steep and loose in places. Just before Furi, the bike trail then flattens out again. Before you reach Furi, you can choose whether to continue on to Zermatt on the paved road or take a detour at Restaurant Alm along the Moos Trail.


Der Start dieser Tour befindet sich auf fast 3’000 m und ist ein Erlebnis-Trail im alpinen Gelände. Für die Route muss man ein erfahrener Mountainbiker sein.

Wegen der Höhe kann diese Tour erst in der späteren Sommersaison gefahren werden (je nach Schneeschmelze). Der erste Abschnitt von Trockener Steg in Richtung Lichenbretter führt entlang eines steinigen und verblockten Wanderwegs. Die Challenge ist, sich einen guten Weg durch das steinige Gelände zu suchen. Der Streckenabschnitt bis zur Station Furgg ist sehr wild, Wanderer trifft man hier selten an.

Nach der Station Furgg führt der Trail das Furggloch hinunter nach Furi. Dieser Abschnitt ist weniger technisch als der obere, jedoch ab und zu etwas steil und lose. Kurz vor Furi wird der Bikeweg dann wieder flacher. Vor Furi hat man die Möglichkeit, auf der Teerstrasse bis nach Zermatt zu fahren oder beim Restaurant Alm auf den Moos-Trail abzuzweigen.


Cet itinéraire commence à près de 3’000 m d’altitude. Il s’agit d’un parcours riche en aventure qui traverse un terrain alpin. Il est réservé aux vététistes expérimentés.

En raison de son altitude, il ne peut se faire qu’à la fin de l’été (en fonction de la fonte des neiges). Le premier tronçon de Trockener Steg en direction de Lichenbretter longe un sentier de randonnée caillouteux présentant des obstacles. Le challenge consiste ici à se frayer un chemin sur ce terrain caillouteux. Le tronçon qui mène à la station de Furgg est très sauvage, on y rencontre rarement des randonneurs.

Après la station de Furgg, le sentier traverse Furggloch et descend jusqu’à Furi. Ce tronçon est moins technique que le tronçon supérieur, mais parfois raide et peu consolidé. Peu avant Furi, le sentier de VTT redevient plat. Avant Furi, on peut redescendre à Zermatt par la route goudronnée ou faire un détour au restaurant Alm sur le Moos-Trail.
