This MTB tour takes us from Köglboden near Achenkirch on the Achensee through the Filzmoostal to the Gufferthütte. We then fight our way over the Ragstattalm and past the Ragstattjoch to the Brandenberger Ache. Along the river we finally reach Pinegg. From there we reach Steinberg am Rofan via a long ascent   Back across the watershed of the Isar and Inn rivers, we duly conclude our round trip around the Guffert.

The Guffert forms a striking double peak with the Guffertstein, which, thanks to its height of 2194 m, towers over the Mangfall Mountains to the north by over 300 metres. This means that the mountain can already be seen from Munich when visibility is good. From the summit, the view extends over the Bavarian Pre-Alps, the Rofan Mountains, Wetterstein Mountains and Karwendel to the eastern Central Alps between the Stubai Alps and Hohe Tauern as well as to the Kaiser Mountains in the east. On this tour we want to go around this impressive mountain. In doing so, we will enjoy great gravel roads and long rolling rides. But also the landscape away from the Guffert knows how to inspire, the Filzmoos gorge, the canyons of Brandenberger and Steinberger Ache as well as the Rofandorf Steinberg are real highlights of the tour. With 1,600 metres in altitude and 49.0 km in length, this tour initially makes a more difficult impression than is actually the case, because here the more leisurely sections dominate over the steep uphill sections.

Destination

Köglboden

Turn-by-turn directions

We start our tour at the Kögelboden hikers' car park. From there we head towards the Gufferthütte into the Filzmoosbach valley. We can follow the geological nature trail "Obere Ampelsbach-/Filzmoosbach-Schlucht". The forest path along the Filzmoosbach stream leads us past the Brandenberger Roßalm. We ignore all the turn-offs and continue until the road runs parallel to the Sattelbach stream. Below the Hinterer Sattelkopf, the road goes slightly downhill from then on. Rolling we finally reach the Schöberl-Jagdhütte, where we keep to the right at the next fork and follow the main route steadily uphill. At the scattered huts of the Wildalm, we must not go straight on to the Angeralm, but turn left past the Abendstein and up onto the ridge. We then roll on to the Ragstattsalmen and, after a short counter-ascension, to the last hut. Here a 30-minute pushing passage along the red and white marked hiking trail awaits us. If the path finally turns into a forest road, we roll downhill over eight hairpin bends. This leads us to the Brandenburger Ache, which we cross at the next opportunity and also follow on this side until we reach the Trauersteg. There we continue on the western side of the river through the Kaiserklamm gorge to the Kaiserhaus. Past the inn, we continue to follow the Brandenburger Ache until we finally reach Pinegg. Here we keep to the right and after a short and steep ascent we reach an asphalt road in the direction of Steinberg/Adlerweg. We always stay on the main route and after a few kilometres we can roll to Rofan into the Unterberg district. In the village we do not branch off, but continue straight ahead on the tarred road. The L 221 finally leads us to the watershed Isar-Inn . From there we only have to follow the road past the Waldfrieden inn to get back to our starting point at Kögelboden.

Die Runde ist ein Klassiker, den man ‘gemacht’ haben sollte ! Ja, sie ist nicht ganz ohne, Länge & Höhenmeter sollte man sich schon zutrauen, aber landschaftlich ist sie schon ganz weit vorne ! Vor allem der erste Teil bis einschließlich zum Kaiserhaus hat viele landschaftliche Highlights zu bieten - besonders beeindruckend das Stück zwischen Abendstein und den Ragstatt -Almen ist vom Feinsten -mit Fernblick bis zum Tauernkamm. Die ‘Schiebepassage’ nach der Radstatt-Alm ist m.E. auch zu 90 % fahrbar - ein feiner Singletrail, der der Tour noch ein Sahnehäubchen aufsetzt ! Obacht am Schluss im Örtchen Pinegg: man muss direkt am Eingang scharf rechts die Teerstraße hoch nach Steinberg - sonst rollt man ganz falsch wieder runter so wie ich ;-) Nur das allerletzte Stück ab Steinberg bis zum Parkplatz ist vielleicht bissl teerlastig, aber dank der tollen Landschaft geht auch das in Ordnung ! Ich kann die Tour absolut empfehlen - vor allem an einem normalen Wochentag. Da bist Du fast alleine und hast die Landschaft für Dich ! Tip: GPX Track benutzen - die Beschreibung ist manchmal etwas unscharf !
