Route description
This MTB tour starts in Oberbozen at the mountain station of the Rittner cable car and follows the road in a westerly direction (sign and marking no. 2), at the fork in the road by the shops slightly uphill to Zagglermoos and left through the small commercial zone to the start of the "Wald-Wild-Wunder-Weg". Here you turn left into the Stauseeweg (the family hiking trail is a pushing trail for bikers) to the "Lobishof". Continue along the wide hiking trail to the "Bacherle", past the "Moserhof" to the country road (be careful at the junction). Turn right here and follow the road for about 100 m to the bus stop in Riggermoos. Now cross the road to the left and walk moderately steep through the sparse "Gunggelwald" forest to the Tann. At the "Tann" bus stop, follow the road with little traffic or the flanking footpath to Pemmern. At the valley station of the mountain railway, you buy the ticket for the entertaining ride, which saves you around 500 metres of ascent. Here a magnificent panorama opens up, from the western Dolomites, the Brenta and Ortler groups to the Ötztal Alps. The alpine path now gently ascends to the "Unterhorn" and "Feltuner" huts. At the Feltuner hut, head uphill (close the fence gate - grazing cattle!). At the next fork, keep to the right (another fence gate) until you reach the fork below a sheep barn. Here you turn left and ride around the summit of the Rittner Horn. On nice wide paths you overcome the undulating terrain of the Rittner Alm with its striking stone walls until you reach the crossroads in "Tramis". Soon you reach the Gasteiger Sattel, the destination of the tour. The descent follows the ascent route. Please set a respectful pace.
