The new Jochpass trail promises plenty of flow and delivers limitless MTB'ing fun for all ages. Its starting point is the Joch pass upper cableway terminus, from where the trail meanders down for around 4.5 kilometres to Lake Trüb. In doing so, it descends 440 m of altitude difference. Bends, waves and jumps have been designed in such a way as to enable beginners as well as advanced riders to have the same amount of fun. There are two ways of getting to the start. The convenient option is to take the Titlis Xpress gondola cableway from Engelberg. Alight at the Lake Trüb terminus and ride along the left-hand side of the lake to the Joch pass lower cableway terminus. This short section takes about 5 minutes. Alternatively you can pedal from the lower Titlis Xpress terminus via Untertrübsee up to Lake Trüb, then take the chair lift to the start of the trail.

Author’s recommendation
