The three routes of the Bear Bike Treasure Hunt are divided into different levels of difficulty and each start and end at the Skill Center at the Hörnli valley station. The aim of the Bärenbike treasure hunt is to find the thalers on the boards placed along the route. Whoever has found all the thalers receives the solution word and may pick up a goodie at the Bike School in the Skill Center Arosa.
With the descent on the flowing Hörnlitrail, the red route starts with a first highlight. After the ride through the forest, the route leads along the Poststrasse to the pump track behind the Sports and Congress Center. Afterwards, the route continues with the Arosa-Weisshorn aerial cableway to the middle station and continues via the Arlenwaldweg to Prätschli and back to the valley station of the Arosa-Weisshorn aerial cableway. After the cable car ride to the middle station we follow the route via AlpArosa / Speichersee and then enjoy the last part of the Hörnli Trail until we arrive back at the Skill Center.
A visit to Arosa Bear Sanctuary is worthwhile for the whole family!
