We start our tour at the upper bridge of the Höllenbach brook flowing through Termeno (Tramin) and cycle to Castel Rechtenthal. Passing the majestic building on the left hand side we follow the road uphill towards the Zogglerwiesen meadows and Corona (Graun). The forest paths no. 4 and 9 lead us to the asphalt road towards Corona.
At the junction to Favogna (Fennberg), a component locality of Magrè, we cycle uphill towards Favogna di Sopra and finally reach Lake Favogna. Favogna di Sotto with its lake, a popular bathing lake and protected biotope, is the perfect place for a well-deserved rest.
On the way back we follow the signpost no. 3 to "Madonna della Neve" (Our Lady of the Snows) and enjoy the downhill ride to the village of Magrè. 3 km past the village, the path no. 3A towards Niclara (Entiklar) branches off - from this hamlet we cycle along the South Tyrolean Wine Road to Cortaccia (alternative trail: no. 7). The well-known Kastelaz Path in the village centre proceeds through the forest straight back to Castel Rechtenthal in Termeno, our starting point.
