One of the most raw high altitude alpine trails. The terrain is covered with sharp, loose and chunky rocks. This is a challenging ride even for the very best. Caution The top part is only to be ridden after having a look and choosing your line. I'd recommend hiking up the trail first.

Access Info

There's no way to access this trail without having to carry and hike your bike. The best option is to approach from Schattwald, ride the tarmac/gravel road until the Stuibenalpe and hike up the rest on foot. Average time to the top is about 1:40 h.
