Tour with views of the Dolomites.A technically challenging mountain bike tour on Brixen's local mountain from the Telegraph to the Ochsenalm and along the Brixner Höhenweg (Alta Via di Bressanone).

The mountain bike tour on the Brixner Höhenweg (Alta Via di Bressanone) begins at the lower station of the Plose cable car (operating times here: http://www.plose.org/sommer/preise-oeffnungszeiten.html). You can float up the ascent to the upper station in a few minutes. At the upper station, start riding on the small road up to the Plosehütte and continue to the Telegraph. Once here, most of the ascents will be behind you. Next comes a very long, at times technical descent to Brixen (Bressanone). There are some tricky sections which only very good riders should tackle on their bikes. For most, it's worth pushing your bike for a short while. From the Telegraph, path 6 leads you north to the Leonharder Kreuz and then winds down to the Plosescharte. From here, take a somewhat easier path for a few minutes down to the Ochsenalm (and a chance to stop for a bite to eat). Continue down the small road for a few metres and before the first hairpin, turn left onto the Brixner Höhenweg
