Description

This is an enjoyable singletrack through the alpine zone. Part of the trail follows the ridge, so you'll have breathtaking views to the southeast of Davos and its valley and to the northwest of Arosa and its valley as well as the surrounding mountains.

This segment starts at Strelapass, which you can reach either by riding up from Davos or taking the Parsenn funicular railway followed by the Parsenn to Strelapass trail. It ends at the Chörbschhornhütte (mountain hut) and the awesome Chörbschhorn Downhill.

You'll pass a small alpine after about three-quarters of a mile; if it's hot and you need to make a bath. Then, you've got a mile and a half of relatively flat riding before you start to climb to the Chörbschhornhütte. The last mile and a half climbs 150 m (500 ft). There are two climbs in particular that will get your attention as they are 10-20% grade, keeping in mind that the air is already pretty thin at 2400 m (7900 ft).

Do take a break at the Chörbschhornhütte to enjoy the panoramic view and because you'll want all your strength and stamina for the 4.5-mile Chörbschhorn Downhill. Unfortunately, Chörbschhornhütte is really just a mountain hut and doesn't offer a restaurant, so you'll have to bring your own provisions.

Expect a typical pithy singletrack climb along the way to Chörbschhorn.
