Description

This is an enjoyable singletrack through the alpine zone. Part of the trail follows the ridge, so you'll have breathtaking views to the southeast of Davos and to the northwest of Arosa, as well as the surrounding mountains.

This segment starts at Strelapass, which you can reach either by running up from Davos or taking the Parsenn funicular railway followed by the Parsenn to Strelapass trail. It ends at the Chörbschhornütte (mountain hut).

You'll pass a small alpine stream after about three-quarters of a mile; if it's hot and you need to take a bath. Then, you've got a mile and a half of relatively flat running before you start to climb to the Chörbschhornütte. The last mile and a half climbs 150 m (500 ft). There are two climbs in particular that are a bit steeper than other, keeping in mind that the air is already pretty thin at 2400 m (7900 ft).

Do take a break at the Chörbschhornütte to enjoy the panoramic views. Unfortunately, Chörbschhornütte is really just a mountain hut and doesn't offer a restaurant, so you'll have to bring your own provisions.
