The cozy mountain bike round starts in Bad Goisern as a free parking space offers the parking lot Goisern Mitte. First, it goes through the town of Bad Goisern which is known as the venue for the Salzkammergut Mountain Bike Trophy in the cycling scene. After the market place, where is also the craft house Salzkammergut, it goes at the junction Unimarkt past the Protestant church on the Ramsaubrücke there we keep to the right and then turn right again into the street to Hanuschhof. After the Hanuschhof it goes over asphalt and forest roads to Weißenbach. In Weissenbach we drive towards Chorinskyklause at Weggabelung we keep to the right. After a lap, you can also start the route on the left which is a little bit more comfortable. At least we keep to the right and cycle along the forest road to the first climbs. Over a small bridge it goes again a few meters further up. When driving through the beautiful woodland you can meet occasionally on game. After the first meters of altitude, it then continues comfortably to the exit which brings us to the Brunntalalm. Cows are still kept in summer at the three rustic huts. Over a small bridge we cross the Weißenbach with the river it now goes towards Chorinskyklause which is reached after a few meters. In the old wood drift system, the water used to be dammed to transport felled timber. Likewise, the Kaiser Jagd Stammtisch is nearby. Biketechnisch we drive back along the forest road until we arrive at the original fork in Weißenbach where it goes the same way back to Bad Goisern.
