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.
Bike stop at the Restaurant Alpenrösli in Medergen.
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.
The car park Ochsenbühl is located right next to the starting point. The parking fee totals CHF 6.00 for a whole day.
