Description

If you like bumpy descents, this tour is the right place for you. It is a challenge and is aimed at bike experts. The journey begins with the PostBus (reservation) or ROMEX bike shuttle (reservation) to the Umbrail Pass, where the trail leads with a long and strenuous carrying passage towards Piz Umbrail. After the ascent, the first single trail descent follows, technically intermediate and partly blocked. Continuing in the direction of Val Vau, cross the stream and, after short sections of forest road, reach the crowning finale: the "Hom dal Chapé". After the start at the wooden sculpture, the trail leads 1.5 km through dense forest over rooty and rocky sections to Valchava.

The priority is regulated and depends on the days of the Val Vau hiking bus PostBus: Wed, Thu and Sat priority for hikers! On the remaining days, coexistence applies.

Geheimtipp

  • This tour requires a high level of driving safety, balance and technical skills as well as a head for heights.
  • Reserve the PostBus for the Umbrail Pass in advance or take the Romex Bike Shuttle to the starting point at the top of the pass.

Sicherheitshinweis

Graubünden's large network of trails is almost equally open to hikers and bikers - provided they are tolerant.

We have a word for it: Fairtrail.

Sometimes you'd rather be alone in the world. Or at least on the hiking trail. But you're not. That's why you have to come to terms with the others. It's not that difficult, and nobody really has anything against a smile and a smile back. So:

On the road on wheels ...

  • you will make yourself felt with the bell at an early stage.
  • you always give way to the hikers.
  • you pass at walking pace or descend briefly.

On foot ...

  • you know that of course you have the right of way.
  • you go to the side when there is enough space.
  • you don't hinder the bikers unnecessarily.
