The first stage of the mountain bike tour "Trai(l)s Vals" is stony, alpine and with brilliant views over the mountains. Pure, alpine trails! The first 360° panorama awaits at Greitspitz after the first steeper ascent. Then it goes on the smuggler trail over the ridge to the Salaaser-Kopf, where a flow trail awaits in the direction of Zeblas-Joch. Here starts a passage over scree along the mountain flank of the "Piz Rot" with a carrying passage to the Fuorcla Val Gronda afterwards. Once you arrive at ridge height, you are exactly on the border between Switzerland and Austria. The efforts are rewarded with a flowing descent of category S3 and a brilliant view of the alpine nature. This is followed by a partially blocked trail down towards the Heidelberger-Hütte, but before you reach the hut, the trail leads left towards Fuorcla Val Fenga – the Fimberpass. With a last carrying passage you earn the approximately 6 km trail descent to the hamlet of Griosch. The almost 800 meters difference in altitude is clearly evident in this passage – what still shows stony and alpine character above is slowly but surely becoming a green mountain idyll again. The last single trail passages of the day lead via Hof Zuort and Val Sinestra to Sent/Scuol. 


<a href="" target="_blank">Heidelberger Hütte and Hof Zuort are ideal for a stop for refreshments (note opening hours).


On high-altitude sections, snowfields are possible until the summer months.

The tour was evaluated in favorable weather conditions, the current weather conditions and weather forecasts must be observed before the tour starts.
