On the densely forested ridge of the Högl, trails that are as varied as they are fun await us. Fantastic panoramic views of the Chiemgau and Berchtesgaden Alps round off the tour.

We start the tour with a relaxed roll-in on the Bodensee-Königssee cycle path. But then we climb the Högl twice, with the red and white transmission mast on its highest point visible from afar: once from the north side and once from the south side. Wonderful trails over rooty forest paths on both sides of the ridge provide great riding fun again and again. At the Neubichler Alm we enjoy a fantastic view of nearby Salzburg. A magnificent panorama also awaits us on the panorama terrace of the Stroblalm, which stretches from the Chiemgau Alps over Bad Reichenhall to the Berchtesgaden Alps.

Good one but would switch the second part. You descent via XC trails and go back up via songletracks (I would rate them S1, some could be S2 as we saw from distance). if you switch, it should be provide more fun.
