Trail description

The ride begins in the settlement of Vorderspadegg, which forms part of the village of Imsterberg. Sixty metres after building number 11, south-west of the bus stop Imsterberg Spadegg, you will find a gravel road (route 604) leading in a south-westerly direction into the forest. After 100 metres turn left and follow the trail uphill for one kilometre uphill. After the corner, at 1,240 metres above sea level, turn left again and take the steep trail leading up via a series of switchback corners along the banks of the Brunnbach stream to Almboden. Cross over the pasture and continue uphill through the Amtswald forest. After 215 metres, turn left and follow route 604 via six switchbacks to 1,800 metres above sea level. From there it is just 1.5 kilometres more, in a south-westerly direction, across Venetboden to the Venetalm hut.
