An enduro highlight spanning 1,200 altitude metres from Eischoll to Gampel-Steg, offering first-class single trails and breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain landscape.
Distance 14.8 km
Take the cable car from Turtig (Raron) up to Eischoll. From there, you can either switch to the chairlift to Striggen or tackle the journey by bike. From Striggen you head towards Sengalp via a high plateau with an incredible panoramic view. A short, steep climb leads from the hamlet of Meiggu to Alp Tschorr, the sight of the majestic Bietschhorn and the surrounding peaks of the Bernese Alps accompanying you along the way. A first-class enduro descent awaits bikers at Tschorr. The fantastic single trail leads past Färichwald forest down to Habere, briefly crossing the mountain road twice along the way. The flowing but challenging valley descent winds its way through the forest down to the hamlet of Lunggi. Two or three sharp turns round off this enduro highlight before it reaches Gampel-Steg railway station. The route then continues on a gravel path along the Rhone, past the idyllic Lake Baggilla and back to Raron.
Take a well-earned break at Sengalp and enjoy the tranquillity of the idyllic pond to recharge your batteries for the next stretch of the trail.
