Graubünden Bike

A long ascent leads over the Glaspass into the Safiental. Among bikers the trail is known to be as demanding as it is legendary. The old mule trail twists down almost vertically, sometimes between bands of rock, to tiny Safien Platz.

Mountainbiking in swiss parks
The Beverin park with the peak of the same name consists of the Walser Safiental below the Glaspass together with romantic Schons. The church in Zillis with its ceiling paintings is an outstanding cultural heritage.
