On extremely demanding, partly extremely exposed and steep trails, the route descends to the foot of the Peitlerkofel. Trail freaks will get their money's worth here, but everyone else better leave it alone.

The tour begins harmlessly with a moderate climb to Campill. Up to the beautifully situated Medalges Alm, it becomes much steeper before we even have to carry our bike a bit to the ridge after the hut. Exposed, but technically still comparatively easy, we ride on a narrow trail to the Schlüter hut. After the Vaciara hut it gets a lot harder. At first extremely exposed on the ridge, then technically demanding, but at least well ridable and at the end very difficult, a partly very steep trail leads us down into the valley.

Safety information

Alpine experience and a high level of riding safety are absolutely necessary. On the way to the Schlüterhütte and especially after the Gömajoch, the trail is extremely exposed. There is a danger of falling here!

Destination

Church in St. Martin in Thurn

Turn-by-turn directions

From the church, we take the main road through the village and down to Preroman. Always more or less parallel to the stream, we continue on a constant incline via Crusteles up to Campill. From here we reach the Medalges Alm (2293 m) via a partly very steep gravel path. After the hut, there is a stretcher passage up to the ridge. On a narrow trail that is very exposed, especially at the beginning, we ride to the Schlüterhütte (2297 m). Here we go briefly uphill to the Kreuzkofeljoch (2340 m), from where we follow trail no. 35 downhill until we meet a gravel path. On this we ride across the Peitlerwiesen (Pra de Pütia) to the Vaciarahütte (2090 m). Shortly afterwards we turn into a partly very steep trail up to the Gömajoch (2111 m). From the Joch, the trail is initially extremely exposed along the ridge. Due to the danger of falling, it is better to push here. On an alpine pasture, the trail temporarily joins a gravelled path, but soon branches off again. We descend very steeply to the road. After a short stretch on the Würzjoch pass road, we turn off and roll down to St. Martin in Thurn.

Restaurants are available at the picturesquely situated Medalges Alm, the Schlüterhütte and the Vaciara-Hütte.
