Description

Long easy climb at the beginning on singletrack then road. Turns into a singletrack climbing up to Scaletta Pass with some technical sections. Great downhill to Alp Funtauna followed by another climb to the Keschhütte, a great place for lunch.

Downhill to Chants on a 1.5 track easy downhill and then along the road to Bergün. After crossing the river to the left side of the valley follow a wide trail up first and then down to Filisur. Follow the trail north of Filisur up the hill and follow the trail to Wiesen Station. Filisur and Wiesen Station are train stations to get back to Davos if needed.
From Wiesen Station it would be the best to ride up to Wiesen and take the trail from there to Davos. That trail would be much nicer and exposed at some sections. I followed the road (watch for traffic, not nice) to Frauenkirch and the trail along the river back to Davos.
