A challenging but very beautifully situated circular trail. The varied terrain is illuminated in the evening and is therefore ideal for training in the evening.

From the PostBus stop Ftan, cumün, the trail entrance is located in the direction of the western exit of the village, at the wooden hut right next to the car park. This loop is the shortened version of the Loipe Hochalpines Institut Ftan, but this does not diminish the pleasure of the ride. The short loop nevertheless has its very own charm and is also technically flawless. This loop is especially popular with locals.

 

Important: The light switch for the night trail is located at the wooden hut near the car park (in the direction of Ardez). After switching on, the light burns for one hour and then switches off automatically.
