The tour starts at the edge of the village of Grafenaschau. The route proceeds over forest roads uphill towards “Drei Marken” 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.
