The Ochsenberg is the big brother of the Mittenberg. While the latter is well known in Chur as a popular bike mountain, only few know the Ochsenberg. It lies directly above the Mittenberg and the sensational trail descent must first be earned with a sweaty ascent. The more comfortable option is to take the post bus and bike from Chur to Maladers and thus avoid the first part of the ascent - this way, the Ochsenberg can even be mastered as an evening ride. But also the ascent from Maladers is still a bit difficult, less altitude meters, but relatively steep throughout. But more than worthwhile for this descent. A narrow single trail winds its way down to the Mittenberg, technically but continuously rideable. Once there, one can then immediately attach another fine trail descent back to Chur.
