(English translation below / Traduction Française ci-dessous)

Über einen Singletrail mit grandioser Aussicht über Rhonetal und Walliser Alpen gelangen Sie bis nach Oberu. Von dort aus tauchen Sie in einen lichten Lärchenwald ein. Nach ein paar Kurven auf asphaltiertem Weg begeben Sie sich auf den Schotterweg durch den 2003 abgebrannten Wald Richtung Albinen, der nun naturbelassen wieder heranwächst. Von dort geht es locker auf der Hauptstrasse zurück nach Leukerbad. Eine abwechslungsreiche Route mit Temporausch. Nehmen Sie jedoch Rücksicht auf die vorbeiziehenden Wanderer an der Strecke.

C’est à partir de ce point que débutera votre parcours. Vous roulerez sur un singletrail qui offre une vue splendide sur la vallée du Rhône et les Alpes valaisannes jusqu’à Oberu. Là, vous entrerez dans une forêt de mélèzes clairsemée. Après quelques virages sur un chemin goudronné, vous rejoindrez un chemin caillouteux à travers la forêt qui a brûlé en 2003 en direction d’Albinen. Ensuite, vous emprunterez la route principale pour retourner à Loèche-les-Bains, parcours très diversifié à une vitesse grisante. Attention aux randonneurs sur ce parcours.
