This technically easy but very scenic MTB tour leads from Montan just over the provincial border into the Fleimstal valley and over the Ziss saddle back to the starting point.

At the entrance to the large car park in Montan, a signpost points to the old railway track. After a few hundred metres we have reached it and now follow the tracks of the former railway connection between Auer and Predazzo. The trail climbs gently in parts, steeply in others, on gravel and asphalt, through dark railway tunnels (with automatic lights) and beautiful deciduous and coniferous forests to the border town of San Lugano. After about three kilometres, turn right again at the sign for Solaiolo Alto and follow the sign for the Krabes-Alm. Shortly before reaching the alpine pasture „übritt“ we literally cross the provincial border again. We continue on trail no. 9 in gentle ups and downs to the Ziss Saddle. It is the only section that forces us off our bikes every now and then because of the narrow path and the roots. The Ziss saddle is a crossing (again on the provincial border) that also offers mountain bikers alternative ways to get back to Montan. We take the „Direttissima“
