Rewarding bike ride in the Merano 2000 cycling and hiking area with nice places to stop for a rest and a snack in rustic alpine huts. The section along the E5 European long-distance trail offers uninterrupted views of the valley basin.
From the car park in Avelengo the route passes initially along a small, at first not especially challenging access road into the old part of the village (trail no. 16), past the Brunner inn and several farms to the Leadneralm mountain hut. The route now leads along the forest track up to the Vöraneralm mountain hut and onwards to the Auener Jöchl plateau (trail no. 2). Here it heads off to the left and along the E5 European long-distance trail to the Kreuzjöchl plateau and Merano 2000. Just after the Meranerhütte mountain hut the trail continues to the left, past the Rotwandhütte and Zuegghütte huts, down to Falzeben and back to Avelengo.
From Scena direction Avelengo.
