This tour starts at the parking area P2 in Hopfgarten and leads through the historic centre before it continues after the bridge by the municipal office to the right along Talhäuslweg. Ride past the old people’s home on to Aussersalvenberg and along the asphalt road uphill in the direction of Alpengasthof Rigi. After approx. 6 km the asphalt road ends and turns into a forest track which we follow for another 3 km. For the total distance of 9 km you have to plan on a driving time of 1,5 hours because of the rather steep incline.
Those who still want more can prolong the tour by a fantastic descent via the two lakes to Westendorf – connection trail 297
