Electric Mountain Bikes Unknown
First, you'll pass through a dense forest, and then it opens up into pasture land. At 2.5 miles, you'll pass the Gschwandtnerbauer mountain hut which offers the usual fare and refreshments you'd expect at a mountain hut. From here, you'll have a great view of the Wetterstein Mountains to the south.
Continuing past the Gschwandtnerbauer mountain hut, the surface becomes paved for a short distance as you pass through the hamlet of Schlattan. Then it alternates between forest and pasture land until you approach a built-up area on the outskirts of Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
You'll follow several local roads through Garmish-Partenkirchen until you reach the the Sankt Anton Way which takes you to the Sankt Anton Cloister. Along the way are fourteen small chapels devoted to each of the Roman Catholic Stations of the Cross. Shortly thereafter, you'll reach the Kletterwald (Climbing Forest) and Wankbahnstrasse (Wankbahn Street) which takes you back to the parking lot for the Wankbahn (Gondola Lift).
