From Möderndorf the route first heads towards the Garnitzenklamm and then uphill along the Eggeralm Road. From the Egger Alm continue in the direction of the Dellacher Alm. In the area of the "Pipp" alpine inn, the route runs for about 500 metres along a cart path (meadow path) until you meet a gravel path again. Cross the stream and then turn right downhill to the asphalt road. Follow this road to the Koutschitzalm and further downhill to Vorderberg and on the cycle path R3 back to the starting point. Also suitable for E-MTB.
