You can start this tour in either St. Moritz or Pontresina but it is only suitable for experienced mountain bike riders. It will take you along the Stazerwald and to the Lej da Staz (Lake Staz), with an option for a nice swim or a break in the restaurant Lej da Staz.
The starting point in St. Moritz Bad is the Ovaverva Pool & Spa, then follow the SwitzerlandMobility route 672 Padella – Corviglia Panoramatour to Alp da Staz on a nice single track or on a gravel road. Past Alp da Staz, the route 672 branches off, but you will follow the gravel road and crossing the picturesque plain Plaun da Staz. A short ascent leads you to a downhill single trail to Pontresina. This trail is only suitable for experienced mountain bikers. Just before Pontresina, at the end of the single trail, take the sign-posted mountain bike trail to Lej da Staz. This small moorland lake is a popular bathing spot with barbecue areas, a restaurant and a kiosk. After a well-earned rest at the lake, you can follow SwitzerlandMobility Route 1 back to St. Moritz Bad and to the starting point at the Ovaverva Pool & Spa.
If the single trail descent to Pontresina is too difficult for you, you can follow route 672 to Lake Staz.
