The Grütsch trail in Lauterbrunnen offers advanced bikers a real challenge. The ground is constantly changing. From the dusty ground to rocks, roots and North Shore elements, everything is there.
The trail is steep and the turns are tight. Nevertheless, the track is incredibly smooth. "As the name "Grütsch" already suggests in Bern German, it is a large landslide. The big boulders in the lower part of the route were an enormous challenge for the shape crew. Since blasting was not a solution, the crew quickly built north shore constructions over the cairns.
The cable car takes bikers comfortably to the start on the Grütschalp.
When you get hungry or thirsty, you can sit on one of the terraces of the base bars on Dorfstrasse. And Vernon at Imboden Bike shop in Lauterbrunnen can fit you out with whatever bike gear you need.
