Tour description

This round-trip around Hoher Kranzberg in Mittenwald begins with a ride through the streets, passing the Schmalensee lake in the direction of "Klais." At the top of "Quicken," in the Mittenwald "hummock meadows," mountain bikers turn left onto a forest trail, which leads to the toll road between Klais and Elmau. A short distance beyond the toll booth, the climb up through the Rossgraben ravine to the Wildensee lake begins. From here, follow the road a short distance down until the ascent to the Korbinianhütte lodge branches to the right. From there, another short distance down through the beech forest before things become rather steep again. The paved road leads up to the upper station of the Kranzberg chair lift and onward to the Kranzberg summit lodge, the highest point of the route at about 1,370 meters. The descent then follows the so-called "Hirnschlagweg" to the Ferchensee and Lautersee lakes, back to the center of town in Mittenwald.
