6.69 km


1:00 h


This loop is ideal for children and their parents. From the post office, you ride along Bielmattstrasse and Lomattenstrasse into the Wildi district. From here you leave the village behind and ride through the larch forest via Bärufalla to Mälchbodu, the highest point of the tour. Here you can take a break and enjoy a large playground, fireplaces and a small lake.

Then continue downhill to the left at the crossing just above Mälchbodu. A small descent follows. Watch out for a steep turn! This trail leads to the next highlight, the Stafelwald forest with its cuddly marmots.

Follow the path to the road crossing at Grosser Stein and turn right. After the second stream crossing, you go up to the crossroads at the edge of the forest. Here you turn left and follow the forest road to the Feeblitz toboggan run.
Past the Alpin Express station, over the panorama bridge and up the last hillside, you reach the Postrondell again.
