The toughest mountain bike tour in the entire Binntal Landscape Park.
The route from Grengiols to the Breithorn is about 15 km long with a difference in altitude of about 1,500 metres and there is not one flat stretch to rest over the entire route.
At the top of the Breithorn mountain however, you are rewarded with a wonderful panoramic view of the entire region. Bikers, like hikers, are forbidden to leave the marked hiking trails in the area around Furggen. From Furggen, the challenging descent through the Saflischtal valley begins. When you reach Hl. Kreuz, you can put your bike on the PostBus or proceed through the Twingischlucht gorge to the official cantonal cycle path along the Roman road over the Roman bridge (Schärtbrigga) and back to Grengiols.

This deep gorge used to be a difficult passage in the trade route over the Albrun pass to Italy. Today the old track with small natural rock tunnels and rare flowers offers a spectacular landscape experience.
Hamlet of Hockmatta
The attractively situated hamlet of Hockmatta was first mentioned in 1393 and stands on a once-busy track from Grengiols to Albrun. The few residential and utility buildings encompass an square-like interior, and there is a chapel on its west edge.
