A gorgeous mountain bike tour by Lake Prags (Pragser Wildsee) in the Pustertal (Val di Pusteria)

The tour begins in Prags, where path 1 runs to the Pragser Wildsee. Next, continue past the lake (1490m) to the Grünwaldalm (1590m) and on through the Grünwaldtal valley to the Alten Kaser (1751m), where trail no.25  takes you to the Grünwaldjoch pass (some sections in the last 400m of the vertical climb where you may have to push). Shortly before the pass, the trail branches off to the Kreuzjoch pass (2283m) to the right. The trail runs flat across alpine pastures. The descent from the Kreuzjoch takes you across a pretty forest path through the Val Fojedora valley. On the descent, keep right and then make climb up the Furkeltal valley to reach the Furkel pass (300m vertical climb). From the pass, the descent takes you down the Furkelstraße to Olang and along the Pusteria cycle path back to the starting point.
