The Arosa Railway Tour offers everything the enduro heart desires. The trail from the Hörnli down to the Schwelli lake challenges the enduro riders with technical difficulties. Down to Isla one enjoys flowing paths and to the crowning one enjoys the wonderful descent from the Weisshorn to the middle station. A special highlight is the trail from the main head to the middle station. From there many roads lead back to the village. The "old Kirchliweg" marked in this tour is, however, a particularly beautiful conclusion of the tour.

Author’s recommendation

Before starting the tour, treat yourself to a fine cream slice in the Hörnli hut.
