The Arosa Bahnentour offers everything an enduro heart desires. The Hörnli Trail offers the complete flow. Down to the Isla you can enjoy fun single trails and to top it off you can enjoy the wonderful descent from the Weisshorn to the middle station. A special highlight is the trail from the Hauptichopf to the middle station. From there, many trails lead back to the village. However, the "old Kirchliweg" marked in this tour is a particularly beautiful end to the tour.

Author’s recommendation

Before starting the tour, treat yourself to a fine cream slice in the Hörnli hut.
