A little bit of everything: steep, twisty singletrack; tight singletrack through a remote valley; and some forest road.

Description

This ride starts at the Strelapass, which you can access either by riding up from Davos or taking the Parsennbahn funicular railway to Weissfluhloch followed by the Parsenn to Strelapass trail. From Strelapass, you'll have a great view of Davos in front of you and the valley behind you through which this trail travels.

From Strelapass, you'll drop into the Haputertällibach valley on a steep, earthen-base singletrack with lots of hairpins. Beware as part of the trail was washed out. Ford or cross the small bridge over the Haputertällibach creek at the bottom of this descent. Then you'll follow a relatively level, gravel-base singletrack just above the Haputertällibach creek for a little less than a mile.

After that, the trail becomes a gravel doubletrack which descends steeply most of the way down to the village of Langweis. About 1.5 miles before Langweis, you'll enter a forest towards the end of the valley. Follow the Kantonsstrasse road to the center of Langweis.

A number of other routes pass through Langweis. There is also a train station in Langweis, so conceivably you could take the train back to wherever you need to get, avoiding the need for a big climb. Instead, try the Langwies to Strassberg trail following the Durannapass loop which takes you back towards Klosters and Davos over a pastoral mountain pass and a remote alpine lake.

Along the singletrack headed towards Langweis, this side of the mountain doesn't seem to see as much traffic as the one facing Davos, so it might be yours for the day. But, you'll have to climb out to pay for it.

You could get lost out here (that's half the fun!), but the Swiss have erected really good trail markers so when you do decide you want to go back, the trail markers will get you there!
