Description

This dirt forest road begins at an intersection called Tanzanger. It climbs almost 250 m (800 ft) through the forest to the Möseralm ski area. The forest breaks just before you reach Möseralm after you cross under a ski lift. Here is also you first chance at a restaurant.

The next kilometer or so is all open as you begin descending to lose all the altitude you just gained. There are some breathtaking views of the mountains towards the west from this clearing.

Once you cross the last of the ski lifts at about 4.4 km (2.7 mi), you'll enter the forest again. The next 8 km (5 mi) take you deep into a heavy pine forest. The only sign of civilization is a solitary, rustic hunting cabin. At the 7.5 km (4.7-mi) mark, you'll just about reach the Schwarzberghöhe (1328 m; 4,357 ft) summit before beginning another quick descent.

This forest road ends with a second 250 m (800-ft) climb up to the Loferer Alm ski area. You'll know you're getting close when the forest opens to a large clearing and a number of ski lifts come into view. There are a couple of restaurants down at the base area of this ski area just off this route. You've earned a hearty meal and beverage after the long climb!
