Description

This is your reward for climbing the Wank Trail. You'll enjoy some solitude in this remote valley as you pedal along an easier gravel road.

From the Almsgasthof Esterberg (Esterberg Mountain Hut), it climbs 50 m (150 ft) through pastoral farmland before beginning a two-mile descent, approximately paralleling the Finzbach Creek. Along the way, it passes in an out of the forest with the Finzbach Creek ambling in the valley below and the Esterberg Mountains all around you.

At the end of this descent, you'll cross over the creek on a small bridge. From the creek, you'll climb again until the intersection with the Bauergraben Forest Road.

In case you missed the opportunity at the first mountain hut, there is a second one, Hintere Esterbergalm (literal translation - behind the Esterbergalm) about 0.8 miles into this segment.
