Leave Fiesch train station on the road up to Binn a 12km climb on a country road. On the way to Binn do not take the road throught the tunnel but ride along the gorge, on the old road which has been rebuilt for bike and foot traffic. On entering Binn leave the village going west towards the Hydroelectric plant. At the Hydroelectric plant follow the alpine trail signs that lead to Saflisch pass. The climb continues for another 14km, after 10km on the gravel road you continue to the pass on a single track that winds through a high alpine plain. At the Pass you get a superb view of the Simplon massive and start a 16km single trail descent through Rosswald and on to Ried-Brig, finishing at Brig train station. This route is best from end of June - beginning of October!
