Through the fields, in places a single trail, you come to Spina and the Walser village Monstein. Here, don't miss a chance to visit to Europe's highest brewery! Now the route passes an old silver mine on a wide forest path. Then on a technically more difficult trail (at times you carry the bike) you reach Jenisberg. Before Jenisberg, you turn right into the Zügen gorge. Following the old Zügen road, you come to Wiesen railway station. After Wiesen railway station, a steep climb gets you onto the old Zügen path. On the opposite side of the valley, you ride back along the edge of the gorge. This single trail is suited primarily for experienced bikers. Following a short downhill run you reach Davos Glaris and on a side road through Lengmatta Frauenkirch you ride into Davos.
