To the Sand Canyon.
A nice half-day tour especially for days when the weather is not cooperating in the high mountains. The climbs and also the descents are a joy for technically experienced riders ... others will probably curse from time to time.

Start at the Aquarena in Bressanone/Brixen (1) through Stufels and up Elvas Street for a few 100 m, then turn right at the second bend to Seeburg (2). Immediately afterwards, the trail descends 100 m on asphalt; there you (unfortunately) have to carry your bike down a steep iron staircase. Shortly afterwards, you take an easy gravel trail via the Andreas Hofer Brücke up to Lüsnerstra;e, where the Karlspromenade (3) immediately begins. Ride along it leisurely to the church of Maria am Sand (4), where you first turn left uphill onto trail no. 7. The first 100 metres of ascent are very strenuous, but soon after you will be on trail no. 8, which is a little more pleasant until you reach Clerant (5).Just 300 m further along the asphalt road, then turn right after the Zipferbach stream (first road then trail) into trail no. 12. Continue along this trail over undulating terrain (a little down - a little up) to the Platzlung ruins (6) and then continue sportily on the trail to the Cava (7).
