The relatively steep forest track leads to the scenic Alpine pastures to the south of the Rofan Range to the Bayreuther Hütte. The views from above the treeline are magnificent (1600m).


Behind the Bayreuther Hütte, follow the signs for "Sonnwendjoch / Sagzahn" and continue through the Alpine pastures surrounding the Berger Kopf to the beautiful Vorderes Sonnwendjoch peak cross (2224m). Continue on to the striking Sagzahn peak (2228m). From there, descend directly via an exposed but well-secured little path with easy climbing sections through the steep western flank and then slightly uphill until just before the Schafsteig Saddle. Continue through the grassy slopes diagonally up hill to the Rofanspitze (2259m).

Descend via the Schafsteig Saddle and Marchgatterl past the Zireiner Almen (1698m) and the Bergalm to the Bayreuther Hütte. Ride downhill by bike to the starting point.
