Route: Scharnitz – Alpine House Karwendelhaus - Scharnitz

Conditions: 10 % asphalt, 90 % gravel, wide forest tracks
Starting in the village centre of Scharnitz, cross the bridge over the river Isar then turn off before the church towards Karwendeltäler (Karwendel Valleys). After about 300 m you come to the Karwendel car park. From there, carry on straight ahead for about 700 m and turn left at the branch-off towards the Karwendeltal valley and alpine house Karwendelhaus. After a 100 m steep uphill section turn right again and continue uphill through a forest well-suited to mountain biking and into the valley. The track begins uphill to the Birzlkapelle chapel. From there keep heading into the valley past the path Karwendelsteg. A little later the track climbs in tough, winding bends up to the hut Karwendelhaus at an altitude of 1,771 m.
