The starting point in St. Moritz Bad is the Ovaverva Pool & Spa, then follow the SwitzerlandMobility route 672 Padella – Corviglia Panoramatour to Alp da Staz on a nice single track or on a gravel road. Past Alp da Staz, the route 672 branches off, but you will follow the gravel road and crossing the picturesque plain Plaun da Staz. A short ascent leads you to a downhill single trail to Pontresina. This trail is only suitable for experienced mountain bikers. Just before Pontresina, at the end of the single trail, take the sign-posted mountain bike trail to Lej da Staz. This small moorland lake is a popular bathing spot with barbecue areas, a restaurant and a kiosk. After a well-earned rest at the lake, you can follow SwitzerlandMobility Route 1 back to St. Moritz Bad and to the starting point at the Ovaverva Pool & Spa.

Author’s recommendation

If the single trail descent to Pontresina is too difficult for you, you can follow route 672 to Lake Staz.
