The starting point of this selective tour is at the parking lot of the Eisenerz sports hall, where you first cycle along the Eisenbundesstraße and after about 500 m turn right to the Leopoldsteinersee lake. At the northwest end of the lake, a gravel path with great views of the mountains leads back to the federal highway and on a bike path that crosses the road several times, over the "Wassermannsloch" to the turnoff to Radmer.

Slightly ascending, the route now leads on a little-used country road to the village of Radmer, where you turn left in the direction of Finstergraben. After only 300 m turn left again in the direction of Radmerhals. You now follow the forest road for about 8 km with steep, challenging climbs and views of Lugauer, Admonter Reichenstein and Pleschkogel to the apex at about 1300 m. At the top of the pass you will find an idyllic resting place with a bench and a shrine, before the descent into the Eisenerzer Ramsau begins with a magnificent panoramic view of the surrounding mountains.

Caution is advised when passing through several cattle gates and from the Gemeindealm there are several opportunities to stop for refreshments. On asphalt it goes over the facilities of the Nordic Training Center and the Franzosenbichl back to Eisenerz and on narrow paths through the picturesque old town. Along the cycle path on the Eisenbundesstraße the tour now leads back to the starting point.

The route runs away from main roads, 20% on bike paths and 80% on side roads. The nature of these roads and paths are divided into 70% asphalt, 30% gravel.
