Jumps and steep turns provide thrills, but are also feasible for ambitious beginners. The obstacles can easily be steered around. Impressive panoramic view.

Mit der Flimsattelbahn kommt man zu den Ausgangspunkt Viderjoch, wo der Trail in Richtung Idalp startet. Der Trail ist für ambitionierte Anfänger und Fortgeschrittene geeignet. Während die Anfänger es eher etwas gemütlich angehen, können die fortgeschrittenen Fahrer richtig Gas geben über einige Hindernisse und Steilkurven. Die ausgezeichnete Weitsicht auf dem Viderjoch reicht von den Paznauner Gipfeln im Norden bis zu den Ötztaler Alpen im Süden. Auf der Idalp lässt sich der Trail gut mit dem Paznauner Taja-Trail kombinieren, der weiter Richtung Ischgl führt, oder man fährt über den Kiesweg wieder zurück zum Ausgangspunkt auf dem Viderjoch. Am besten ist es, mit der Flimsattelbahn zurück zum Ausgangspunkt zu fahren und den Trail gleich nochmals fahren. Zurück nach Samnaun geht es ab dem Viderjoch mit dem Trail 697.
