Two excellent descents into the side valleys from the Jakobshorn in Davos. The variant down to the Dischma valley is more challenging, but offers a fantastic panorama and a first-class singletrail section on the way back to Davos.
Many take the cable car up to the Jakobshorn, but you can make the climb on your bike if you like. To do so, just ride along the pleasantly rising alpine highway to Clavadeleralp and then go via the Jatzhütte to the peak of the Jakobshorn. This is where the descent starts, initially through the sloping terrain to the Brämabüel secondary summit. The view from here to Davos and Lake Davos is excellent. Then it’s hide to head down the long singletrail into the Dischma valley. After Alp Stillberg, the path passes through some forest, becoming a bit more technical than in the open alpine landscape. Eventually, you’ll reach the valley floor, but you’re not done yet. After a short distance on the road, the trail continues with 170 metre climb on the other side of the valley until you hit a right serpentine singletrail snaking its way back to Davos. This is fun to ride, but you’ll hit an untold number of roots, which can make this track especially challenging when wet. Finally, you’ll reach Büelen, from where you’ll take a trail along the golf course back to Davos.
