Superb single tracks and perfect panoramic views between Jatzmeder and the Walser village of Monstein.
The tour over Hauderalp is technically demanding in places but rewards the effort with perfect panoramic views of the lower Landwassertal.
After the first climb you reach Clavadel at the entrance to the Sergital valley. A short descent leads down to the Sertisbach stream, where you cross the road into the famous Sergistal valley. The trail then leads partly along a single track past Heidboden (barbecue spot) and Junkerboden to Spina. The main climb starts at Spina, to the top station of the Rinerhorn aerial cableway at Jatzmeder.
At the highest point of the tour, with superb panoramic views of Davos, you turn onto a tricky high-level trail.This leads you to Hauderalp, where dairymen sometimes keep fresh milk cooling in the fountain to refresh thirsty bikers. After a few bends on the road to Monstein, the route again branches off on an exciting single track towards Oberalp and Inneralp and then downhill to Monstein. The inns in the attractive Walser village offer bikers a warm welcome in their garden restaurants and, as well as the well-known local Monstein beer, also offer all kinds of other refreshment. After a short break to refuel, it’s downhill again via Spina to Glaris, where you change to the other side of the valley to avoid the traffic on the main road. Then follows an easy ride via Lengmatta and Frauenkirch back to Davos and the departure point at the Sport Centre.
Variante A: Anyone preferring to avoid the climb can take the Rinerhorn aerial cableway from Glaris directly to Jatzmeder and then enjoy single track fun to the full!
