No fences, no roads, no houses. Only a narrow trail, amidst untouched nature. This bike tour takes you to the Ducanfurgga and right into the probably prettiest valley in the region of Davos. Riding on the Alps Epic Trail Davos, just epic.

The tour starts in Filisur and leads to Bergün along the sign-posted mountain bike route (90 Graubünden Bike). However, it is easier to get on the train in Filisur and skip this ascent. The ascent to Stugl begins immediately behind the train station and then continues from there to the residential settlement of Runsolas. The ascent on the alpine road through Val da Stugl is initially very steep, but then becomes increasingly flatter. The idyllic high alpine valley makes you feel like you are somewhere in Alaska. Pine and larch forests break through alpine pastures, through which a wild mountain stream flows through the middle. Meanwhile, the ascent has merged onto an easily rideable single trail. The path then becomes increasingly steeper and for the last 400 metres to Ducanfurgga, bikes need to be pushed or carried. However, the scenery on this alpine transition is spectacular - as is the single trail down into the Ducan valley. The super-trail ends in Sertig, from where the return journey to Filisur begins, leading over the world-famous Landwasser Epic Trail (Alps Trail Davos). The single trail leads from Sertig up to Äbirugg (Rinerhorn) and then remains on the ridgeway that leads to the Hauderalp. A short descent leads to Monstein, after which it is time for a 200-metre climb to a world-class trail leading to Jenisberg. There the trail heads down the Zügenschlucht gorge and later reaches the Wiesen train station, after which you follow the Landwasser river until you reach the Landwasser viaduct. The main road is then used to return to Filisur.

Incidentally: The famous bridge from the "Home of Trails" video, where Danny MacAskill balances on the wall over a roughly 84 meter drop is located at the Wiesen train station.

Author’s recommendation

Option: Instead of coming back to Filisur via Rinerhorn-Monstein-Wiesen, take the trail to Clavadel in Sertig, which then leads to Davos. For the return journey take the train back to Filisur.

Super Tour! Gestern (26.7.2019) war ein Teilstück wegen Holzarbeiten gesperrt (Samstag und Sonntag auf eigene Gefahr). Unter der Woche derzeit nur mit grossem Umweg (einige Höhenmeter und vor allem Tragmetern) mehr. Scheint noch ein bisschen anzudauern. Sonst nur zu empfehlen, sowohl Weg hinauf, Landschaft als auch (und vor allem) Weg hinunter nach Sertig Dörfli. Viel Spass
