Both fun and action are guaranteed on this very challenging stage – prior biking experience and a good physical shape are required. The 42-kilometer long route is rated very difficult, ranging from gravel trails and footpaths to areas where you must push the bike. Uninterrupted views of the splendid 3000-meter high peaks of Samnaun Massif and Verwall Mountains await you as well!
- After a short gently rolling part along the scenic Paznaun Valley Trail, the route climbs steeply up to Vorarlberg's border area near Zeinisjoch Ridge. Pedaling past Kops Reservoir you reach a well-loved rest stop area: welcome to Heilbrunner Hütte located at 2302 meters above sea level.
- In vicinity to Scheidseen Lakes you find a 3 kilometer long track where you – probably - must push the bike down to superb Schönverwalltal Valley. Leaving behind Schönverwallhütte, you simply follow a smooth gravel trail towards the lower valley until you reach St. Anton.
- This popular biking route - transalp bikers conquer the stage from Oberstdorf to Lake Garda the other way round – is much more fun if you start in the south as you can bike downhill the rough path from Heilbronner Hütte to Verwalltal Valley.
