This 27 kilometer long tour starts in Oetz, at the entrance to Ötztal. As the asphalt route features only 150 meters of elevation gain it is perfectly suitable for families. Right at the beginning, between Oetz and Roppen, bikers must conquer the only a bit more demanding ascent. A wood-covered rockslide area in the west marks the border between Ötztal and Inntal.

In Roppen you reach the Inntal Cycle Path, follow it downstream. Soon you arrive at the Roman Bath, a small temple building which is worth a rest. The water coming out of the fountain is rich in minerals and famous for its healing effects. In times long past this bath was located on the old Roman Road.

A slightly descending trail takes you to the village of Haiming from where you return upstream towards Ötztal Bahnhof. Here you continue on the Ötztal Mountain Bike Trail until you get back to Oetz. Special tip: take a refreshing swim in idyllic Lake Piburger See after an adventurous mountain bike day.
