This multifaceted and partly challenging day tour has all, what makes mountainbiking so special. The panorama trail with the crash site of "Lady Patricia" is also known as "Bomber Trail".

This challenging round tour starts at the northern side of the Chur railway station. Through the villages of Felsberg and Domat/Ems you reach the golf course in Domat/Ems. That's where the ascent starts. The mountain road is quite steep and it will take you some power to reach the mountain village of Feldis at 1'500 m. This is the perfect place to recharge your batteries in one of the restaurants.

From Feldis, continue on the level street in direction of Scheid. At point 1498 the next as-cent begins. Follow the paved mountain road up to the Alp di Plaun on 1953 m. At this point you can decide, whether you want to continue on the «Lady Patricia Trail» to Brambrüesch, or branch off and ascent to the Dreibündenstein. To continue on the here suggested route, follow the hiking trail to the ski hut Term Bel, turn right there and after 200 meters the trail branches off to the left side (follow the signal «Lady Patricia»). Before you reach the high route, the ascent continues and in the end you have to push your bike for appr. 10-15 minutes. When you have finally reached the height, a very panoramic and quite technical single track lies before you.

In the middle of the high route, you will find a memorial stone, where 1944 a US bomber has crashed into the mountain. The narrow single track traverses below of the Dreibündenstein. After that part, you come to enjoy the flow on the descent to Spundis. There, the trail branches off to the left and runs fluently at first, later more technical, to the Alp Juchs. From there, the trail continues demanding and challenging, before the last part of the descent will take you with a lot of flow back into the Alpine City of Chur.

Information; sehr schöne Tour mit fantastischen Ausblick, nur der Abschnitt von der Term Bel Hütte zum Gedenkstein Lady Patricia ist nicht fahrbar der Pfad ist stark vom Weidevieh zertreten somit ist mit längeres schieben und trage Passage zu rechnen ca.30min. Ab Gedenkstein Lady Patricia bis zur Abzweigung Skilift Hütte Hünerköpfe einigermassen fahrbar das Pedalen ist ab und zu schwierig durch die vielen engen Stellen .

Information zum Streckenabschnitt Emser Skihütte - Gedenkstein "Lady Patricia": Der Weg ist nur stellenweise fahrbar, da er vom Weidevieh stark ausgetreten ist. Somit beläuft sich hier die Schiebezeit auf 30 min.
