Tour information

Start the tour at the tourist information office in Hopfgarten. Go through the railway underpass and follow the road to Kitzbühel. When the road is getting steeper, right after the railway underpass, turn right by the power plant and follow the road to the Windau valley (signposted). Now go along the river. The valley soon gets wider and the path will take you to the inn Lendwirt (690m above sea-level). Cross the bridge behind Lendwirt and keep on cycling for about 1 km into the valley. At the bridge follow the signposting right up to Straubing. The tarmacked road soon turns into a gravel path which is getting gradually steeper. Finally the tour leads through a light forest and along a well-managable forest track to the Käsealm Straubing dairy farm. If you feel like it then help yourself to a strengthening snack there and recharge the batteries of your bike.
Descent: behind the premises of the dairy farm the route leads on evenly until the downhill ride begins to the Windau valley, Gasthof Jägerhäusl and Gasthof Lendwirt.
Free parking: in the centre of Hopfgarten – P2/Zentrum parking lot or at the gravel parking lot next to the road to Kelchsau.
