Tough single trails on the loop to Alp Laret make stage 2 of the Regional Bikeroute Engiadina Bassa 442 even more attractive. Optionally save the first 400 hm and start at the mountain station of the Ftan-Prui chairlift.

The loop from Ftan is a treat for mountain bikers. The ascent via Prui to Schlivera to Alp Clünas and Muot da l'Hom is a real challenge. But it compensates with an impressive view over the Lower Engadine. At Muot da l'Hom, the descent begins on single trails to Alp Laret. After a well-deserved and recommendable break at Alp Laret, the last descent follows on forest roads back to Ftan.

Turn-by-turn directions

From Ftan, head north on a wide forest road to below Prui to point 2006, where the trail branches off to the left into the forest and leads in a wide arc to above the timberline. At Schlivera, the route leads away to the left to Alp Clünas, which is reached in a last more strenuous ascent. At Muot da l'Hom (2500 m) the highest point of the tour is reached and a crisp descent on single trails follows to Alp Laret, which is open to the public in high summer. From Alp Laret, the route is relaxed on the wide forest road down to Ftan to the stage destination.
