The "Schlender Trail" allows bikers to easily stroll back and forth between the two pastures "Hühnersteige" and "Gampe Alm," thus connecting the two idyllic pastures. The red single trail runs without major difficulties, initially through open terrain and later winding through the forest. Halfway along, bikers have the option to leave the single trail early to head towards "Stabele Alm" and finally to the "Ohn Line." However, those who ride all the way to the Gampe Almen can take a well-deserved break at the rustic huts with their large sun terraces. This nearly 1 km long single trail is particularly suitable for e-bikers and can be ridden in both directions. Therefore, be aware of oncoming traffic.

Author’s recommendation

Stopping at the two pastures, Gampe Thaya or Gampe Alm, is well worth it!
