After the ascent on the cable car to Oberlech, the track first follows a small road towards Rud-Alpe. After a few hundred metres, the route turns off into the gorge, marking the start of the actual trail, which is 1,400 m long and has a difference in altitude of 220 m. The track continues through the gorge along pleasant forest soil and gravel trails towards the village. Branching off continually from the original line are moderately difficult and difficult sections, which are equipped with drops of different heights and North Shore obstacles.
The end of the trail is near the valley station of the Lech-Oberlech cable car. There is also a facility for washing bikes here, so you can clean up your bike ready for transporting on the cable car for the next descent.
