What was called only just rideable in former days, is not so hard to
especially when using a full suspension bike. But still the cart trails, the gravel
and the rock steps remain a challenge.
We start in Mittenwald and take the street in the direction
Leutasch . At the first sharp curve we leave the asphalt
road and go straight on to the Lautersee and the Ferchensee.
After passing the Ferchensee we take the first
branch to the left after a total of 6 km following the sign to Schachen / Bannholzer
Weg , where
we go straight on at the next branch. At about km 9,5 we reach
a forest clearing where we manage the first gravel trail to
the left for some
hundred meters before we turn to the right. Here a first foretaste is
waiting for us. A small rocky cart single trail leads
us to a wide forest street after 1 km.
On this we fly down and brake our speed before we reach
the forest path from Elmau to Schachen, where we
have to turn left sharply to Schachen
