Located in the Italian side of the 3-Länder Trails region, the upper part of the Schöneben Trail is famous for its fast and steep sections, definitely not suitable for beginners.
The trail begins on the left side of the top Schöneben lift station, and is easily visible with a clear sign marking the route.
It starts as it means to go on: in the trees with a rocky entrance followed by roots and berms!
You'll get the odd glimpse of Lake Reschen below you but keep your eyes on the trail as it requires full concentration.
For enduro and downhill lovers, this trail will only bring a smile to your face and when you emerge at the end, you'll be pleased to see the trail continues with the Lower Schöneben Trail!
