This mountain bike tour in the Merano area does not have many metres of ascent, but offers great and long downhill trails.

Take the Vigiljoch cable car up to the mountain station, the start of the mountain bike tour. Take trail no. 34 up towards the Vigiljoch, shortly before the Joch turn right onto trail no. 3, pass under the little church and take trail no. 4 to the Berggasthaus Panorama. Here you can enjoy the good food and the great panorama. Continue on trail no. 6 to the Schwarze Lacke and from there on the great trail no. 28A down to Aschbach. Continue on tarred road no. 28 down the valley until trail no. 17 branches off to the left at a bend. Follow this on a good path down a little way. The path turns into a narrow track and follow this across the forest (the bike has to be pushed in parts) until you reach the forest road or the tarred road towards Plaus. Here descend on difficult trail no. 30A (less experienced cyclists can also follow the tarred road) towards Plaus. At the bottom of the valley, take trail no. 25 to the valley station of the cable car to Aschbach. Cross the Vinschgerbahn
