Medium-difficulty round through the Albula Gorge to the Walser village of Mutten. The trail from Stierva down to Tiefencastel is an insider tip with lots of flow.
Distance 40 km
Remote mountain villages and barely used forest paths characterize this beautiful tour to Mutten and Stierva on the other side of the Albula valley. This medium-difficulty round can be mastered by any experienced biker in terms of physical condition and riding technique. From Lenzerheide the path leads along beautiful paths over Lain and Muldain to the Solis Bridge over the Albula Gorge. The old bridge is almost 80 m long and was built in 1868. After the bridge the ascent begins on the old asphalt road to the pretty Walser village of Mutten. Shortly before the village the road leads through a 1.3km long tunnel. Afterwards we drive on a beautiful hiking trail over to Stierva, where the long descent follows on one of the best trails in the area down to Tiefencastel. A tip for all gourmets: The Capuns in the restaurant Belavista in Stierva are well known far beyond the Albula valley. The return trip can either be undertaken by bike via Mistail, Alvaschein and Tschividains to Lenzerheide, or you can take the PostBus back to Lenzerheide in Tiefencastel.
