Details

Description

From S-chanf (1669m) the route runs on route no. 444 "National Park Bike Marathon" along the route of the Rhaetian Railway to Zernez (1485m) and further along the Inn to Susch (1426m). From here follows a gravel road to Lavin (1387m). At the height of the wooden bridge you will leave the route no. 444 and it goes down to the Inn gorge at Giarsun (1361m) and back up to the hamlet "Sur En d'Ardez" (1469m), a short stretch on the road to Ardez (1464m). Now a short, steep climb leads back to route no. 444 to Ftan. From Ftan Pitschen (1644m) it goes on a difficult single trail, crossing the road twice, continuing towards Scuol. Then follow two hairpin bends (about 1.3 km) on the main road, before the path branches off to the right at Putschigls (1361m). The single trail leads via Nairs (1191m) to Scuol station (1250m).

Directions

On the eastern edge of the village from S-chanf towards Zernez. Constantly to the left of the Inn, several times ascending and descending to Zernez. Here, after the covered wooden bridge on the Spöl, the Ofenpass road is crossed and the short counter-ascent via Plej is mastered. Past the church we go back into the forest, following the Inn to Susch and Lavin. The route follows the right bank of the Inn before crossing it at Ardez. The village is crossed before the last ascent over the ruins of Chanoua, past the valley entrance to Val Tasna to Ftan, is tackled. From Ftan a single trail leads to Nairs, from where a last section follows the Inn before the last ascent to Scuol.

Alternatively, route 444 (National Park Bike Marathon) leads from Ftan along the slope to Scuol.
