The tour starts in the Motta Naluns ski area and after a short time leads over a single trail with small crisp ramps to Jonvrai. From Jonvrai there is a steep, stony trail over which you reach the beautiful wooden suspension bridge. Now follows a beautiful flowing single trail out of the Val Clozza along the mountain flank to Salez. Then a sporty trail awaits you, which leads over hill and dale to Vastur. Here we follow the ski slope until we arrive in Sent.

Below Sent at Chavorgia, a challenge awaits those who love hairpin bends and those who would like to become one. Some hairpin bends are so narrow that they can only be mastered by shifting the rear wheel. As is well known, practice makes perfect and on this section from Sent to the main road to Scuol a few exciting challenges await.

After crossing the main road, you reach the last section to Sur En. Once again, a flowing section follows, which is only interrupted by a small rock garden in the middle of this section to Sur En. Once you have crossed the bridge to the Sur En campsite, you continue into the village of Sur En. Here you are guided by a simple, well-maintained forest path to Pradella. The last section to Scuol follows the forest road along the Inn.

Author’s recommendation

Both Sent and Sur En are worth a short stop to experience the charm of the Engadine village. In addition, the local restaurants invite you to have a bite to eat.

Im ersten Drittel technisch anspruchsvoll, eher schwarz als rot, muss viel geschoben werden. Flow stellt sich erst an dem zweiten Drittel ein. Hängebrücke ist Stand Juli 2021 defekt, es gibt eine Umtragungs-Möglichkeit.
