The third stage of the Swiss Epic 2020 leads with two loops over a total of 50km and 1900 meters of altitude around Arosa. The tour starts with a 10km and 800m long ascent up to the Hörnligrat. Over the idyllic Alp Maran and through the Arlenwald you pass the first highlight of this tour: the Arosa Bear Country. If you have time, make a short detour to observe the formerly abused bears in their new home. It continues with a steady ascent to the Carmennahütte, then it gets really steep to the Hörnligrat - the beer or snack in the Hörnli Hut is well deserved. After the snack on the Hörnligrat, a spectacular descent follows on a narrow trail with exposed spots to the Urdentäli, where a beautiful, but also challenging uphill trail in the high alpine landscape leads you up to the Urdenfürggli. From there follows a rapid & flowing descent on a newly created trail in alpine terrain with a view of Lenzerheide. Then it goes up to Gredigs Fürggli at 2,614 m above sea level.M – at the same time the highest point of this tour and the entire Swiss Epic 2020.What goes up must come down: 10km of pure downhill fun follow! A beautiful trail in stony terrain along a mountain flank leads into a flowing trail through a green pasture landscape with a view of the beautifully embedded and picturesque Älplisee. And that's not all: this is followed by the lowest part of the unique HörnliTrail, one of the longest and most beautiful flow trails in Europe, leaving no MTB wishes unfulfilled. A beautiful trail along a pristine green landscape will take you to a stream crossing and from there to the second long ascent of the tour. With a length of 15km and an altitude difference of 500 metres, a stopover in the village of Arosa is recommended to replenish your energy reserves. The ascent to the Rot Tritt – where a fantastic view awaits you – is even at the beginning. After a while, the ascent, which provides plenty of variety with trails in between, becomes a bit steeper. Once on the plateau, this tour literally takes you into new spheres: the descent promises pure pleasure and is surrounded by a unique lunar landscape. If you like trails, you won't need the phrase "Houston, we have a problem" in this section.  A rooty trail leads to the Arosa Bear Land, from where a trail with an incredible panorama over Arosa leads to the well-deserved end of the day in Arosa. A jump into the cool water of the Untersee is particularly recommended.


During a detour to the Arosa Bear Land, observe the once abused bears in their new home.
