Tour description

This mountain bike tour to the Hallerangeralm lodge, at 1,768 meters, begins at the parking lot (P1) of the Mittenwald train station and first follows Innsbrucker Straße to the nearby "Riedboden" nature conservation area. After a short ride, you will reach the neighboring town of Scharnitz, which is known as the starting point for all tours into the Karwendel valleys. Passing the Wiesenhof alpine restaurant, the ride starts into the Hinterautal valley, which has marvelous natural experiences to offer hikers and bikers. The route leads slightly uphill along the origins of the Isar river, and you will soon reach the first of the Isar's sources, as well as the quaint Kastenalm alpine hut. Things get quite steep for mountain bikers, particularly the first climb toward Halleranger. After several more climbs, you have reached the destination of the tour – the Halleranger Alm lodge – and a hearty meal will reward mountain bikers for their efforts.

Refreshment stops along the way
