Mieming Cycle Route

The approximately 25 km long cycle route R4 proceeds from Telfs in the Inntal valley across the Mieminger Plateau past meadows and woods up to the Arzkasten tavern and from there down to Nassereith in the Gurgltal valley, where it joins the Via Claudia Augusta Cycle Route.

On the Inntal Cycle Path near Pfaffenhofen we cross the bridge and cycle towards Telfs. Just on the northern bank of the Inn river, the Mieming Cycle Route branches off towards west. The gravel path runs first along the river, then it ascends through the forest to the higher districts of Telfs. At Lumma the path continues further towards north and following the Püligtal valley up to Wildermieming (300 metres in altitude). After that ascent we enjoy an almost flat section to Obermieming and Barwies.

There the second ascent starts, mild at the beginning, then a little steeper. Passing Obsteig on the edge of the forest under the peaks of the Mieminger Chain, the route climbs up a bit more than 200 metres to the Arzkasten tavern, the highest point of the cycle route at 1,160 metres a.s.l. Here the descent starts – either via the main route to Aschland or you take the variant via Holzleiten through the Roßbachtal valley to Dormitz and Nassereith. The village on the Fernpass route at 830 m a.s.l. is the end of the Mieming Cycle Route R4, which joins here the Via Claudia Augusta which leads either to the Fernpass or through the Gurgltal valley to Imst.
