Start from the Bike Hotel Alpenblick****s on the cycle path to San Candido (1,150), from there continue along the cycle path along the River Drava until Dobbiaco, (1,210) up to the railway station. Pass the railway station to the main road, cross this and cycle for about 2 km on the cycle path towards Brunico. After the railway underpass turn right towards Dobbiaco Alta, following the Stoneman sign continue into the Silvestro Valley, passing the Rifugio Genziana, from there continue to the first fork, where you continue to “Seiterhof” in Gandelle (1,570) and from there the steep ascent begins along the easily negotiable route no. 25 to Rifugio Bonner hut (2,350). Spectacular views reward the effort and if you take a break at the Rifugio Bonner hut, you will feel as though you are in the “first row of an Alpine cinema”. The return path to the Bike Hotel Alpenblick ****s takes you back to Sesto along the same path. Alternatively, you can go back to San Candido and Dobbiaco via the Monte San Candido.
