Long and crisp single trails characterise this scenic tour on Scuol's local mountain. Recommended by our local bike guide Werni Dirren.

The first 850 metres in altitude are quickly overcome, as you can take the cable car from Scuol to Motta Naluns. If you feel like it and have the energy, you can also pedal up via Ftan and Prui. From Motta Naluns there are still about 300 metres of altitude to climb.

Via Alp Clünas, you pass Muot da l'Hom, where you have a magnificent view of the valley and the mountains opposite with Piz Lischana and Piz Pisoc. Now follows a flowing and long single trail that runs along a steep flank. Despite the magnificent view of Tarasp Castle, concentration is required, as you pass sharp rock jags and sometimes over crunchy block passages.

In the mountain restaurant Prümaran Prui you can fortify yourself and recover. Afterwards, various single-trail variants lead to Ftan. If you like hairpin bends, you can curve down to the Inn on single trails. The route then leads along the river back to Scuol.

Author’s recommendation

The detour from Ftan in the direction of Adrez to the Pra da Punt bridge is worthwhile, as a surprise awaits every biker there!

Super Tour, bin mut dem Gondeli hoch. Hat so ziemlich alles dabei: von flowig, zu einfach laufen lassen, waldig / wurzelig, mit Steinen versetzt bis enge Spitzkehren. Zum Teil war der GPXtrack etwas ungenau. Habe die Überraschung für Biker bei der Brücke in Ardez nicht entdeckt. Was wäre es gewesen? Nehme an das war die Brücke, ab der man danach auf der Strasse Richtung Ftan fährt?

Hammer Runde! Bitte sich Zeit nehmen um alles ausgiebig zu genießen. Deshalb eine Einzelfahrt mit der Bahn ist zu empfehlen. Vielen Dank für´s veröffentlichen, Danke Werni !!!
