May 14, 2021
On this day you will come very close to the first high mountains in the Alps. The terrain is getting more and more hilly and shows you the Allgäu cattle farming as one imagines it: extensive meadows with countless cows, speckled with small forests and isolated farms. In between, rustic Alps invite you to have a snack with a view. In order for the cows to stay on their pastures, you will have to overcome some pasture gates.The day starts with a steep ascent on the Hauchenberg. You even collect the first meters of altitude within Weitnau. The route does not lead all the way to the crest of the ridge, but a little below along the northern slope. Over Wilhams you roll back down into the valley of the Untere Argen to cycle uphill again on the other side.There you dive into an idyllic high valley. A short single trail along a slope is hidden here in a forest section between the alpine paths. After Geratsried, it then goes uphill over pastureland around a valley cut. Along the Jugetbach you will reach the Thaler Höhe ski lift. Here you follow the serpentines of an asphalt utility road up to the ridge. A great panorama of the Nagelfluhkette opens up at the top.As a reward for the ascent, there is now a single trail along the ridge. This trail is popular with both mountain bikers and hikers. It leads idyllically through forest and over meadows to a vantage point where you can look at the shining Alpsee and your stage destination Immenstadt. You can find the way down via the Jugetalpe and the village of Zaumberg.Finally you come to the country road that leads down to Immenstadt. Next door and partly behind the guardrail there is a narrow path that you can easily ride a mountain bike if you don't want to roll down the road. A cycle path takes you through Bühl to the center of Immenstadt. In Bühl you can make a detour to the shores of the Alpsee. Treat yourself to an ice cream with a view of the water or a refreshment before you reach your destination for the day.
