The trail begins with a ride down a forest track to approximately 1950m above sea level (ASL) where the real trail begins. It drops over the ‘Bättulhirmi’ into the forest high above Blatten. The first section consists of lots of bends in clearings with small jumps in the straights – you can easily cycle around all the jumps. The trail passes old hamlets and green meadows before reaching the lower section of the trail. The purpose built mountain biking trail winds it’s way through the open forest – a true flow trail. The trail continues on a cleared track back to the road some 250m from the cable car station.
