Description

Beginning in Saas-Balen head up to Rittmal before entering a forest where you climb up through a series of cross backs.

Once you leave the forest you’ll come to a narrow gorge where you will face an even tighter series of turns.

After you reach Heimischgartu you need to get off and push for a bit as the steepness becomes pretty impossible to ride up the final stretch of singletrack.

Descend partly the way you came, until the trail splits, and this time take the path on the righthand side, through a forest all the way back to your starting point, looking out for Alpine Ibex and Chamois as you go! **Sources** https://www.outdooractive.com/en/route/mountain-biking/saas-balen/grueebu-gletscher/24497748/#dmdtab=oax-tab1 https://www.saas-fee.ch/en/saas-valley/activities-events/activities/mountain-biking/
