The inconspicuous tour high above Mals leads over one of the smoothest and beautiful downhill trails of the Obervinschgau.
From Mals, take the country road via Glurns to Schluderns. The ascent begins here, firstly leading past the Churburg and finally over the Saldurbach on the 20th route to Matsch. Above the village, the route continues and follows a section along the Matscherwaal, later ascending onto a forest road through the forest Tartschwald. Follow the 18 Trail straight after taking a turn to the right at 1780 metres above sea level. Here, you will have to push the bike for a few meters. Before the next forest road is reached, a trail branches off to the left, leading through a large forest area and a short stretch of forest road to Malettes. Now follow the marked Route 12 to the outskirts of Mals. This descent is considered one of the «most efficient» routes of far and wide.
