A taxing ride up to the "Annahütte" (currently not active).  
From Faak you ride on a paved road towards "Outschena" and then take a well-marked path in the forest towards "Annahütte"/Jepzasattel.  

Author’s recommendation

ATTENTION : Due to the slope being too slippery, the ride from Annahütte to Slovenia is not yet possible.  We hope that the route will be ready by early summer 2015!

Turn-by-turn directions

This physically demanding bike route goes from Faak to Ratnitz and from there climbs up on “Altfinkensteinstrasse” towards “Outschena.”  The forest path takes you constantly upwards on a serpent-like path, always inching closer to the nearby stream.  Finally you cross the stream and bike along it as it bends.  In the upper section you hop onto a new forest path.  Eventually you reach “Annahütte” which is the highest point of the tour.  Take the same route back down to Faak.  If you are feeling ambitious you can head straight into the “3-Country Mountain Bike Tour” and ride to Kransjka Gora (Slovenia).  From there the route either goes over the “Wurzenpass” or through Tarvis (Italy) back to the Faaker See.  This route is still not marked by signs. 

Public transport

Faak is easily reachable with the busses and trains of the ÖBB.

Getting there

From Villach take the B83 or B85 to "Faak am See."

Parking

There are plenty of parking spots across from the tourist information center where you start the ride.
