MTB-tour Marchkinkele/Cornetto di Confine round (042)


General description
The Marchkinkele/Cornetto di Confine is a summit north of the village Toblach/Dobbiaco, on the border between South Tyrol (Italy) and East Tyrol (Austria).This MTB tour is one of the most demanding in the region.The efforts are quickly forgotten on the summit, as a 360 ° view offers an unforgettable panorama. In the south are the Dolomites with the Three Peaks and in the north the glaciers of Austria. Just below the summit is the Marchhütte hut, which invites you to make a break.
Route description
The tour starts at the train station in Toblach and heads north, past the village of Wahlen, into the 
Silvestertal valley. At first still on asphalt road, later on a gravel path through the forest. This forest 
path leads gently uphill to the Silvester Alp mountain pasture (1,800m), which is surrounded by 
alpine meadows. Behind the alpine pasture, the tour leads back into the forest on the right side 
and uphill to the Bodeneck (1,805m). From there, an old military road from the First World War 
branches off on the left and leads in serpentines, initially still in the forest, later with a view of 
the Dolomite peaks, up to the Strickberg. Most of the ascent is done, it is not far to Marchkinkele 
(2,545m). The descent begins via the same path back to the Bodeneck, from where the circular 
tour leads in an easterly direction downhill to the “Jaufen” mountain farms and on to Winnebach. 
From there the Pustertal Valley Cycle Route leads in a westerly direction to Innichen and on to 
Toblach, back to the starting point. 
TIP: Alternatively, the Signature Trail to Silvester Alp mountain pasture starts at Marchkinkele:
