From Rabland we drive straight south in the direction of Birchberg and Naturnser Alm. It is a long climb, but it is easy to ride. The road is paved and not too steep. We have to follow nine hairpin bends before we have to turn sharply right onto a forest road. This brings us to the Naturnser Alm - hard to miss.From here we have to follow the Almenweg to the west. The path is more intended for hikers and is sometimes very blocked. Even with the eBike, it is not possible to ride everything. The path leads under the Mauslochalm and past the burnt down Tablander Alm.Here we leave the Almenweg and follow the forest road, which is more delicate. The path is a constant up and down, but never steep. Later we come back to the Almenweg, which is not in good condition at the time of the tour. There are a lot of trees and the path is overgrown. Instead, it is advisable to follow the road to Schartegg and then pedal up the somewhat longer road again.Lunch is good at the Marazoner Alm. Strengthened, we make our way to the Fontana Trail - an exciting descent that crosses the little-traveled road a few times. The trail is a welcome change from pushing on the blocked Almenweg.The Fontana Trail ends at Tschars and we ride on the bike path to Goldrain. This is practically flat and we let the day end relaxed.
