408 - Hinterhornalm – Ganalm
Bicycling & Mountainbiking

A classic that leads over three alpine pastures and offers the best views into the heart of the Karwendel.

From Maria Larch a little frequented, tarred road leads to the Umlberg. In the midst of meadows the cows graze on this high plateau. From Umlberg take the forest road uphill to Vomperloch. The path offers many great views of this natural monument. The view just before the Ganalm is particularly idyllic. The forest road continues to the Walderalm, at the end it gets steeper. After the steep section the path leads out of the forest, a large alpine meadow with the Karwendel giants opens the biker's heart. Here lies the Walderalm, the highest point of the tour. Then it goes over the Hinterhornalm on the toll road to Gnadenwald. In Gnadenwald a road leads over a high plateau back to the starting point.

Special feature: The tour is very strenuous but there are only a few tours with so many views of the Karwendel Mountains and the Tuxer Alps.
