An extremely steep, washed-out downhill.

Description

The trail starts at the Gotschnargrat summit, where you can reach either the Panoramaweg (Panorama Way) trail or the Gotschnaboden cable car connecting the village of Klosters.

You'll lose 450 m (1500 ft) in the first mile and a half (almost 30% grade). If the steepness isn't enough, the switchbacks in the center of this descent were very washed out when I was on it and there are just enough rocks in the trail to make it interesting. After this initial 1.5 miles, the trail becomes much easier and passes into a dense forest. Soon after the trail exits the forest, you'll reach the Davos-Wolfgang station.
