Route: Nature Park Info Center Scharnitz - Karwendelhaus - Hochalmsattel - kleiner Ahornboden - Rißtal - Plumsjochhütte - Gerntal - Pertisau - Maurach-Buchau

Route description:
This tour, classified as difficult, requires skill and stamina. With 60 kilometers in length and 1,850 meters in altitude to overcome, it is one of the longest and most difficult stages. It leads you through the contrasting landscape of the Karwendel, which reveals the wide spectrum of the mountain world with rugged rocks, lush meadows and green forests.

After starting at the Scharnitz Nature Park Info Center, you first cycle about 500 m into the valley before turning left onto the forest road to the Karwendelhaus. You cycle through the Karwendel valley to the Karwendelhaus without any junctions. It is only a short climb to the Hochalmsattel. After a descent, you reach the Kleiner Ahornboden and now cycle on well-maintained forest roads through the Johannistal in the direction of Hinterriß. Once in the Rißtal, you cycle into the valley until you reach the turnoff for the Plumsjoch. Now you have to climb another 500 meters to the Plumsjochhütte. After the stop for refreshments, a technically difficult descent follows (single trail Plumsjoch or sliding trail) into the Gerntal and on an asphalt road further to Pertisau. After passing through the town, you cycle directly next to Lake Achensee on a cycle path to the stage finish at the parking lot in Maurach-Buchau.

ATTENTION: Bicycles are prohibited from 1.11.-15.4. in the Karwendel valleys (Karwendel-, Hinterau- and Gleirsch valleys).
