It leads us from Laufen northwest first up the Blauen, then üvia the Challpass and the Challhöchi to the recently renovated Remelturm, which was used as an observation point into neighbouring France during the First World War. The route continues along the hills of the Lütz valley to the Col du Neuneich, the name of which gives away the fact that we are now in Alsace. Now the Rückweg begins, first down into the Lützeltal, to then tackle the third and last obstacle of the day on the south side of the valley. Via Roggenburg and its motocross facility we climb up to the ridge of the Hasenschell, which brings us back to practically the same altitude as we were on the Remelturm. The first part of the following descent is characterised by Jura limestone scree on the trail, which requires a controlled riding style. Then the downhill becomes easier, and soon we can see the Laufental valley ahead of us. Via Huggerwald we approach the last part of the downhill, which brings us steeply down to the cantonal road just before the starting point of Laufen.

Author’s recommendation

  • The tour partly crosses the «green border» into France, so please take identity papers with you and observe customs regulations
