Long and thrilling singletracks characterise this scenically beautiful mountain bike tour on Scuol's local mountain.

Taking the cable car from Scuol to the top station Motta Naluns provides an opportunity to ascend the first 850 metres fairly quickly, from here, there's another 300m ascent by bike. For those with the energy and willpower, it is also possible to bike up via Ftan and Prui.

Coming over Alp Clünas, you pass Muot da l'Hom, where you can enjoy a magnificent view of the valley and the mountains opposite, predominantly, Piz Lischana and Piz Pisoc. Then follows a long flowing section of singletrack, running along a steep slope. Despite the impressive sight of Tarasp Castle in the distance, absolute concentration is necessary here as the trail becomes more challenging as it snakes past jagged rock formations and is obstructed in parts by natural obstacles.

At the mountain restaurant Prümaran Prui you can have a bite to eat and recover. From here on, various singletracks lead down to Ftan, passing overgrown rocks and winding through fairytale forests. If you like switchbacks, you can take a singletrack down to the River Inn and follow the river all the way back to Scuol.

HOME OF TRAILS 

Incidentally: In the «Home of Trails» video, the Scottish bike star Danny MacAskill cannot resist jumping from the new to the old stone bridge in Val Tasna. Below him: a wild mountain stream. Beside him: an impressed Claudio Caluori.

 Discover the Val Tasna

Author’s recommendation

The detour from Ftan in the direction of Ardez to the bridge Pra da Punt is certainly worthwhile – with a surprise awaiting every biker.

Hammer Runde! Bitte sich Zeit nehmen um alles ausgiebig zu genießen. Deshalb eine Einzelfahrt mit der Bahn ist zu empfehlen. Vielen Dank für´s veröffentlichen, Danke Werni !!!

Als Berner Hobby-Mountainbiker mit Ferien wollte ich doch mal eine Tour im Graubünden machen. Der Aufstieg von der Bergstation auf über 2000 Metern ist für mich als Flachländler und Raucher ein bisschen mühsam, aber machbar. Bei der anschliessenden Traverse ist Konzentration gefragt, da es an einigen Stellen seitwärts ziemlich runtergeht. Was ich dann erlebt habe... Ich würde hier gerne Fluchen, denn heilige ***, das war das früh Aufstehen mehr als Wert! Ein super Trail, mit wahnsinns Aussicht. Einfach nur Weltklasse. Unten kam ich dreckig, aber mit einem riesen Lachen wieder an. Mein Tipp, macht den Trail mehrmals, einmal um zu Fahren, und einmal um die Natur zu Betrachten. Ich war fast überfordert beides gleichzeitig zu machen. Danke Scuol für den Bau und Unterhalt von dem Trail, ich komme gerne mal wieder!

Wahnsinn!! Hammergeile Tour! Absolut zu empfehlen. Die Höhenmeter bergauf zwar hin und wieder steil, aber absolut machbar und auf gut beschaffenen Wegen. Die Trails sind einfach nur der Hammer. Flowing, aber auch mal Stock und Stein! Top! Dann noch absolut zu empfehlen die Alp Laret für eine Pause!! Einfach nur traumhaft!!
