The Latemar circuit is a classic in the cyclists' paradise of Rosengarten-Latemar.

Directions


Starting in Eggen (1130m), head eastwards on the "Städtlweg" marked as 0, then past the Oberlehenhof until the Fleckerhof. Cross the Obereggner Straße and after the farm turn left onto the gravel road up through the meadow. Two short but steep ascents bring you to a hairpin bend in trail 8. Follow the trail in a south-easterly direction across a pretty meadow. From this point on the trail flattens out and after climbing over two fences, follow trail 10 straight through the meadow. At the small group of houses, follow the road until the main road to Obereggen. Ride along the main road for approx. 2km until the lift station and continue to the highest point of the tour. Right behind the parking spaces, the new trail no. 9 begins towards Bewaller. Ride slightly downhill and then past Bewaller straight onto trail 8. Keep on the trail, following it through gorgeous meadows and forests with views of Latemar, Rosengarten and the Karersee. Ride past the back of the lake, initially on path 12, then on no.10 towards the Karer pass. At the crossroads directly opposite the old Grand Hotel, follow path 13 up the mountain. This path later joins path 21. Keep following the path until you are directly above the peak of the pass at the top station of the Hubertus lift. This is where the descent begins (detour to Malga Secine is possible). Take the old mountain pass marked with number 519 down to Moena (vertical drop approx. 550m). A brief tour through the pretty centre of the village is well worth it before taking the cycle path (easy to find – it runs along the river) to the south towards Predazzo. In 15-20 minutes you will comfortably reach the bottom station of the Latemar cable car. Note the operating times! Two lifts will then take you from 1000m up to the Feodo pass at 2200m.

At the start of the ski piste (later a trail) marked no.504-521, ride down to the Zischgalm and then continue on the Almweg towards Obereggen until you reach the Laneralm. The tour now leaves the Almweg and runs left across the large meadows (trail 10). At the fork in the road with number 11, stay on no.10 and ride it down some steep sections to the Obereggen Straße. Continue downhill on the asphalt and ride trail 10 back to Eggen.
