The tour takes us over the Kreuzkofel, Göma and Würzjoch passes and is demanding in terms of fitness and riding technique. The view of the Geisler peaks and the Peitlerkofel group is overwhelming.

From St. Magdalena, the trail leads up to the Kreuzkofeljoch at the foot of the Geislerspitzen peaks. The long and steep ascent at the end requires a very good physical condition and sufficient strength in the legs. But at the top we are rewarded with very beautiful, albeit demanding trails through a grandiose landscape. Between the Gömajoch and the Würzjoch there are a few short pushing passages before the last difficult trail passages await us after the Würzjoch.

Turn-by-turn directions

At the Naturfreundehaus we briefly take the main road, but then follow an asphalt side road into the valley. On the gravelled trail no. 33 we reach the car park at the Zanser Alm. From here, trail no. 35 leads us via the Gampenalm and the Schlüterhütte up to the Kreuzkofeljoch (2340 m) and then back down again as a trail until it joins a gravel path. Follow this path across the Peitlerwiesen meadows. Shortly after the Vaciara hut we turn off and reach the Gömajoch (2111 m) via trail no. 35. Now we go downhill on trail no. 8b until we meet a gravel path to the Göma hut. Soon after the hut, a trail begins that leads into the boulder field of a rockfall. We cross this by pushing and continue via the Munt de Fornela hut to the Würzjoch (1987 m). Here we take the pass road for a short while before we shorten the following bend on trail no. 8. After another stretch on the road, we turn back onto the 8 trail. This section is much more demanding than the first and can be bypassed on the pass road if necessary. The trail finally joins the road from Lüsen. Here we turn left to the Würzjoch pass road and continue on this to the Edelweiss Hut. Shortly after the hut, we turn onto trail no. 10, which we follow along the stream until we meet the pass road again. After heavy rainfall, the path remains wet and slippery for a longer time. If you want to avoid the muddy ride, it is better to continue on the road. At the junction of trail no. 10 with the pass road, there is a final counter-climb before we descend on an asphalt road towards Villnößtal. Gravel path no. 11 soon branches off from the road, which we follow to the next fork. Here we turn onto trail no. 11a. At the end we go downhill along a road back to St. Magdalena.

Restaurants are available at the Schlüter hut, the Vaciara hut, the Gömahütte, the Munt de Fornela, at the Würzjoch and at the Edelweiß hut.
