The loop begins on the village square of Saas-Grund. After crossing the bridge in the direction of Saas-Fee, the route turns north on various paths, first downstream along the brook, then through a larch forest to the Bidermatten hamlet. Here the first descent starts along a little-used country lane to the round church of Saas-Balen. Then it's time to start pedalling as the climb along the river to Saas-Almagell begins. In Bidermatten, you cross the lower part of the hamlet and the meadows. In Saas-Almagell, a small lake and various restaurants invite you for a well-deserved break. Finally, the route leaves the valley at the «Biele» along the asphalt road on the left. This last ascent is rewarded with a rapid descent over the hill and dale to the «Unner de Bodme» hamlet. From here, the trail returns to the starting point in Saas-Grund.
