Mountain bike tour fresh from the alpine pastures

Open
Demanding tour, but in return it offers a summit experience as well as scenic stretches. From the Wipfelwanderweg via Gobernitz to the Steinplan and back via the Geierleitengraben & Roatmoaralm.
From the Wipfelwanderweg car park via Gobernitz to the Steinplan - this is the first already very demanding section. Return in the direction of Geierleitengraben via Brandnerhube into Möschbauerngraben. Continue via the Watzenbachergraben into the Rößlergraben. Inwards along the ditch via the Roatmoaralm and Rachau back to the car park.
