Tour description

Dominant motifs on this trail are the Upper Engadin lakes and the glaciers around the Piz Corvatsch. From the Signal summit station, a panorama trail takes you to the Alp Suvretta, followed by a quick downhill stretch and a short flow trail leading to a brief passage in front of the Orchas region where you will need to push your bike. After that, a varied route appears that will delight each and every biker, running to the Julier Pass road and via an old forest track down to Silvaplana.

Highlights include the Via Engiadina above Silvaplana and the spectacular view over the Upper Engadin lake plateau.

  • Anstelle den Aufstieg mit der Signalbahn zu bewältigen, sind wir hoch gefahren. Der weg steigt moderat an und ist immer gut zu fahren. Am Anfang bietet der Trail viel Flow, wird dann etwas schwieriger. Zwei-/drei Tragepassagen kommen auch vor. Der Weg ist anspruchsvoll, bietet aber tollen fahrspass. Die Abfahrt nach Silvaplana ist technisch einfach aber schön. Wir sind anschliessend auf der anderen Seeseite in einem stetigen Auf und Ab retour nach Pontresina gefahren.
    Special: Für Technikliebhaber ein Leckerbissen
