Lift assissted Enduro trails around the Bike Kingdom!
Start the tour on top of Piz Scalottas. Don´t forget to take a 360° look around the fantastic scenery!
The ride start pretty mellow on a purpose built flow trail. The many berms and small jumps are a good warm-up into a long riding day. At the middle station take the chair lift back up again. Ride the flow trail again, this time via "June-Hütte" to Alp Nova. Via the hiking trail and a steep gravel road (less than 100m up) you´ll get to the start of the "Alp Stätz" trail. This rough but fast trail has been lightly adapted to maximize fun on two wheels. Its so good! Please, slow down for occasional hikers!
Just below the ski restaurant at Alp Stätz the next trail starts. As soon as you enter the forest difficulty increases with many, sometimes slippery, roots. The lower part, just right of the creek, adds some rocks and steeper parts to the mix. A real fun trail for routined all-mountain riders.
In Parpan roll downhill and at the end of the village follow the trail left of the road. This transfer to Churwalden starts a little boring but becomes more fun after a short distance. Take the cable car to "Heidbüel" where the most challenging trail of the day waits. (Can be skipped if you didn´t feel too comfortable on the previous trails).
The trail starts just below the lift station and offers all kinds of challenges an experienced enduro rider can ask for. Many rocks and roots in mostly steep terrain combined with some tight switchbacks offer great fun - if you have the skills. Back in Churwalden take the cable car one more time.
Traverse on gravel roads and a short trail section to "Alp Spoina", shortly after another fun natural trail with a cool canyon section brings you back to Lenzerheide for the finale. Pedal to the bike park and take the gondolas all the way to the top of Rothorn. The newly built bike trails "Dark Side of the Moon" and "Great White" are super fun to ride and offer high alpine scenery. Eventually you´ll arrive at the bike park where you can pick a trail suitable to your liking.
