Turn-by-turn directions

We start at the Ramsach Church in Murnau and ride through the Murnau Moor to Grafenaschau. The route proceeds up towards the Drei Marken via forest roads on a surface that is perfect for bikes. We will pass the Angerlhütte alpine hut during our ascent. After a short downhill passage the route continues uphill towards the mountain saddle known as “Drei Marken-Sattel”. Now we can let go and enjoy the ride. The route initially proceeds on gravel, and then on tar downhill towards Unterammergau via agricultural roads to Altenau and Saulgrub. Once we have passed Bad Kohlgrub, we follow the Lindenbach stream back to Grafenaschau, and by riding through the Murnau Moor we once again arrive at our starting point.

Sehr schöne runde mit richtig saftigen Rampen. Die Abfahrten sind abwechslungsreich und reichen von steilen schotterigen bis schnell fahrbaren übersichtlichen Wegen. Bei Punkt Dez. 47.635573N 11.119113O GMS 47°38'08.1"N 11°07'08.8"O UTM 32T 659183 5277972 Stimmt der Track nicht. Der vorgeschlagene Weg existiert nicht mehr. Ist aber kein Problem. Einfach an der Abzweigung rechts weiterfahren und nach ein paar Kehren ist man wieder auf dem Track.
