Short & Sweet
The background extras in this ride into the wild, legendary Val Sinestra are characteristic lower Engadine village outlines. Gentle climbs alternate with steep slopes. At the furthest point, there is a short, sweet single-trail descent. Going back out of the valley, it is then a little more straightforward, finally leading along the bank of the Inn.
