The probably best-known single trail in the Alps: From the Dreisprachenspitze (2838 m) to the Furkelhütte (2153 m). From 10 am to 4 pm, biking is prohibited on this trail. This means that bikers on the Dreisprachenspitze have to start at 8.30 a.m. at the latest in order to reach the Furkelhütte in time.

Start at ➊ Stilfserjoch (2758 m). After a short but steep climb we reach the 85 m high ➋ Dreisprachenspitze. From now on the fun begins. The first kilometre is technically very easy, then the trail is exposed and from the ➌ Goldsee onwards there is also blocky terrain, which is not easy to ride in parts. There is a danger of falling in some places and this trail is not recommended for bikers who are afraid of heights. To get over the adrenaline rush, a stop at the ➍ Furkelhütte is unavoidable. There are various downhill options from the Furkelhütte. Via the Almenweg trail to the Stilfser, Lichtenberger and Glurnser Alm alpine pastures with the descent to Glurns. This variant is recommended for bikers with good physical and technical conditions. From the Dreisprachenspitze to ➏ Glurns: 31.5 km, 660 hm/2500 tm. Variant: Descent via the Platztal trail to ➎ Gomagoi and on to Prad: 8.15 km / 50 hm / 1015 tm.
