From the tourist centre in Obereggen, we ll ride uphill on asphalt for about 1.5 km, then turn left onto a gravel trail (trail marker 21) that is challenging to ride. On this trail we reach the Karerpass (1745 m) in alternating uphill and downhill sections.
There s a rewarding trail descent at our feet. A bit boggy at first, it then goes down to Moena very flowing, but with some more challenging root passages. We continue on the cycle path along the main road to Predazzo. About 1 km after the valley station of the mountain railway, we turn right and take the strenuous climb up to Malga Gardonè and finally to Passo Feudo. If you don't want to do this stretch on asphalt, you can easily take the cable car up.
Between the Rifugio Passo Feudo (2180 m) and our destination Obereggen, we once again enjoy some short but challenging trail sections. On trail no. 521 we go downhill to the Ganischger Alm and over a short trail section to a road, which we follow to the Reiterjoch (1996 m). At first, we continue briefly downhill on asphalt, then we descend on trail no. 9 on gravel to the Epircher Laner Alm. We now continue on trail no. 10 until we reach a barrier, where we turn left onto a steep trail. This eventually meets a gravel road, which we follow briefly to the right, but then continue on trail no. 10. On an alpine pasture, trail no. 11 branches off, which leads us to Obereggen as a beautiful, but in the meantime challenging trail. The last stretch into the village is asphalted.
