Past the houses, follow the same path that soon leads into the forest and on and on until you reach Gries. You cycle on and on on the gravel road until you come to a crossroads. Here you keep to the right and drive through the stone pine forest in the direction of the Nissl Alm. In serpentines you then reach the Nissl Alm.
