The Jochpass trail with lots of flow and some more difficult sections promises unlimited riding fun. From the Jochpass mountain station, the medium-difficult trail goes its way down for around 4.5 kilometers in the direction of Trübsee. You will master a total of 440 meters in downhill altitude. Curves, waves and jumps have been designed so that beginners and advanced riders alike can enjoy the trail. However, experience on a mountain bike is a prerequisite in any case. To get to the trailhead, there are two options. Either you decide for the comfortable variant and take the Titlis Xpress from Engelberg. Get off at the Trübsee mountain station and ride along the left shore of the lake to the Jochpass valley station. For the short section you need about 5 minutes. Or you can ride your bike from the valley station of the Titlis cable cars via Untertrübsee to Trübsee. From there, the chairlift will take you to the start of the trail.

Author’s recommendation

Only children with experience on bike trails and a solid technique should ride this trail.
