Distance 10.9 km
Highest point1,776 m
Lowest point1,167 m
The starting point for this varied tour is the Längenfeld sports center. From there you drive in the direction of Camping Platz and follow the Ötztal Cycle Path (No. 11) into the valley to Huben. At the soccer field, turn right and follow the signs to Feuerstein. Right from the start, things get really steep. After some time of exertion, you come to a crossroads. Here you can follow the path to the left to make a detour to the Alpengasthof Feuerstein. However, to get to the Polles Alm, follow the forest road that leads away from the small chapel on the left. The fresh, chilled beer is already waiting for you at the front Polles Alm. But the refreshment has to wait until departure. Whoever stays on the saddle for the next 3.5 km has conquered one of the steepest climbs in the region.
