Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from the parking area at the cemetery Latschach, drive along the main road to the East until you get to a junction. There turn right towards "Martinihof". Follow the road until you get to this tavern and turn left into the direction of the snack station "Ischnig". Cycle past the snack station, cross the stream bed. Shortly afterwards, turn right and follow the forest path to the starting point of the Kopein Trail. At the end of this trail, turn left onto the forest road and after some time turn right again towards "Ischnig". From here cycle back to Untergreuth, where we take the short shortcut via the Shorty Trail down to Latschach. From there we follow the road in the direction of the castle ruin Finkenstein until we get to the junction "Samonigg". Here  turn left and cycle up to the farm. Just after the stable turn left and enjoy the ride down the Samonigg Trail. At the end of the trail turn back to Latschach and the starting point of the tour.
