The Ofenpass is tame to drive on both sides, hard pitch peaks are missing, the track is well developed. From the Graubünden side an intermediate gradient to La Punt has to be considered. Scenic offers the Ofenpass beautiful nature on Graubündener side a bit rugged than from the South Tyrolean side.

The connecting road between Switzerland and South Tyrol runs almost exclusively through forests on its way to the top of the pass and only passes a few small villages. The pass therefore does not convey a classic alpine feeling. It does not go through rugged rocky landscapes or past glaciers and high peaks, but it has its own character due to its remoteness. In addition, the gradient is fairly constant, which makes it pleasant to ride.
