Short ascent, long descent - and what a great one! Something of the best when it comes to demanding single trail tours in the region.

After the cableway ascent from Chur to Brambrüesch, a short and pleasant ascent over the Malixeralp to Lake Spundis follows. There you take the exit via Juchs to Chur. And it's got it in it! At the beginning a flowing trail leads across the meadows, which inspires jumps of joy. Later it becomes steeper and more demanding until you have crossed the ravine and descend over a meadow to Alp Juchs. After following the alp road for a short while, a hiking trail soon branches off to the left again. Now begins a technical, partially exposed single trail, traversed by demanding (but with some practice rideable - please avoid abbreviations) hairpin bends. The trail crosses the road several times until one follows the alp road a bit further down. And then after a bend another trail branches off to the right. Here begins a flow firework, the trail leads relatively flat in several sections up to the Rosenhügel above Chur. On this last section, especially before the curves, drive with foresight and caution, as hikers or bikers might also come across. From Rosenhügel one follows the road and behind the Welschdörfli through back to the valley station of the Chur cableways.

schöne, abwechslungsreiche und herausfordernde Tour! Der Spitzkehrentrail ab Juchs hat es wirklich in sich, da ist gute bis sehr gute Bikekontrolle vorausgesetzt! Ich würde diese Tour eher "schwierig" als "mittel" einstufen.
