Wonderful alpine landscape, varied tour
From the centre of Forstau, head south towards Forstau-Winkl. The first 4 km are on asphalt, then about 7 km are gravel roads, always slightly uphill, to the alpine huts Fallhausalm or Vögeialm.
From there an "intensive" mountain bike tour begins up to the Oberhüttensee with the Oberhütte (1.860m), where you deserve a refreshment! On the way back, be careful when driving downhill!
You can stop at the Winklhütte, the Fallhausalm, the Vögeialm or the Oberhütte.
Weather changes, rapid drops in temperature, thunderstorms, wind, fog and snowfields are objective dangers and require the right behaviour on the road. Hutkeepers are experienced mountain connoisseurs who can give good tips on the weather and the route. Lack of equipment, overestimation of one's own abilities, carelessness, poor physical condition and a wrong assessment can lead to critical situations. During thunderstorms: Avoid peaks, ridges, trees and rope belaying at all costs.
In an emergency, please dial the following emergency calls: No. 140 - Mountain Rescue No. 112 - Euro Emergency Call
