Not only railway passengers find the Zügen gorge awe-inspiring. In similar fashion to the railway line, the bike trails snake their way along the top of the gorge towards Wiesen and back, providing bikers with impressive views. The route is often open in early summer due to the mild climate.
Travelling along Mattastrasse from Davos you enter the Matta woods. Following the road to Clavadel you reach Heid and Junkerboden. Through the fields, in places a single trail, you come to Spina and the Walser village Monstein. Here, don't miss a chance to visit to Europe's highest brewery!

Now the route passes an old silver mine on a wide forest path. Then on a technically more difficult trail (at times you carry the bike) you reach Jenisberg. Before Jenisberg, you turn right into the Zügen gorge. Following the old Zügen road, you come to Wiesen railway station.

After Wiesen railway station, a steep climb gets you onto the old Zügen path. On the opposite side of the valley, you ride back along the edge of the gorge. This single trail is suited primarily for experienced bikers. Following a short downhill run you reach Davos Glaris and on a side road through Lengmatta Frauenkirch you ride into Davos.

Precipitous area of risk
In places the trails pass close to steep drops - only for those without fear.
Consideration
Area with livestock guardian dogs: On the mountain pasture Alp Mer/Panixer you may encounter livestock guardian dogs from the beginning of June until the end of September. Respecting certain rules helps avoid problems.
Please consider the information boards on site for the current location of the dogs.
A fence will protect you from direct contact with the guardian dogs. If you have a companion dog with you, please put it on the leash and pass the pasture briskly. Not to hike with companion dogs.
