Schönebach - Schreibersattel

starting point:
Bezau, centre of town
point of arrival: Bezau, centre of town

Bezau – Rimsgrund – Langenalpe – Schönenbach – Iferwiesalpe – Hintere Leugehralpe – Auenalpe – Helbockstobelalpe – Schreiberesattel – Wildmoosalpe – Bezau

This tour, which contains steep parts, is suitable for experienced cyclists. From Bezau, you take some short, strenuous ascents via Rimsgrund to the Langenalpe. Via an asphalted toll road and through a shaded wood, you arrive at Schönenbach. You then continue via the Iferwiesalpe past the turning for the Schneckenlochhöhle and the Iferalpe. Here, you cross the wildly romantic gorge of the Subersach and cycle via a moderately steep alpine path to the Helbockstobelalpe. There then follows an uneven, demanding path to the Geserstobelaple and a part where you need to push (approx. 10 minutes) as far as the Schreiberesattel. From here, you now cross alpine terrain, initially moderately downhill, and then steeply downhill through the wood into the valley.
