Steep + Loose + rocky and technical in places = Not a 'Green'. A good section though if you have the skills.

Fairly steep, wouldn’t necessarily rate green because the average biker will have troubles braking on the loose surface

Alpine flowtrail with very little challenging sections. Incredible views for the whole descend. We had the trail pretty much for ourselves, most hikers were on the black “B” trail today.

Climb on loose gravel, one hard ramp on the hiking-path “bypass”

Fairly easy climb on narrow road. Very picturesque and besides from the Postbus and a rare local car very little traffic.
