High Point

A family friendly hard packed dirt and rock flow trail for mountain bikers with beginner to moderate ability. The trail opened in late September, 2018 and was designed by a trail architect from Colorado, USA. There are lots of fast switchbacks and pumps that keep the trail fun, but also keep your speed down. The trail is long so rest points are scattered along the descent. There are no big air jumps, or other obstacles that would be considered difficult. The trail is well marked and well maintained. The trail head starts just below the Hörnli Express Gondola, and ends at the base of the gondola. It's a super fun ride, and if you stay at a hotel in Arosa, Switzerland, you can get discounted lift passes which makes the ride even sweeter.

Patrol Rescue Service Emergency Number: 144
