A diverse tour with a visit of the old Wals colony and a cool but challenging single trail back to Arosa.

A perfect tour for a half-day trip. A rapid descent to Litzirüti, then turn right at Sonnenrüti and follow the road to Medergen, a small and cosy mountain village with a fantastic view across the Grisons mountains. The small restaurant is a great spot for a short break. The following descent to the reservoir lake is technically demanding. Less advanced bikers are better off returning on the same trail as before. The track leads across roots and big stones with some steep passages to the Isel and then back to Arosa.

Public transport

Public transport friendly

Slowly, a bit like a tramway, the Arosa-train cruises through Chur, passing the city walls, the Malteser tower and the Obertor (gate), the landmark of Grisons capital. But soon the stroll on tracks across the city ends. At the city boarder the tramway changes into a mountain railway and climbs through the wild Schanfigg valley all the way up to the well-known holiday destination Arosa. On only 26km of length the trains ascents over one thousand altitude metres.

 

Getting there

As of Chur it takes about 40 minutes to climb the curvy street all the way up to Arosa. The Schanfigg road leads across the valley and during the 30km ascent and 360 turns it overcomes 1,320 metres of altitude.

Parking

The car park Ochsenbühl is located right next to the starting point. The parking fee totals CHF 6.00 for a whole day.

Tour über Arosa Stausee nach Medergen Bike gestossen!Bergwanderweg hinauf über Stock und Stein und Wurzeln. Um keinen Preis runterfahren!

Runter über die Strasse nach Langwies, Rauf nach Litzirüti und weiter nach Molinis/St.Peter Von Molinis nochmals ein fulminanter Aufstieg nach St.Peter SBB Station.
