The loop trail along "Alte Niederthaier Straße" (old federal road of Niederthai) is much more demanding than it seems to be at first glance. The ascending route leads along Umhausen's high-altitude trail featuring a short but very steep uphill section where also the most avid cycling aficionados push their bike. The return route travels past Höfle: making a sharp right turn you reach Gasthof Stuibenfall renowned for its mouth-watering Tirolean specialties. Before enjoying a speedy downhill adventure on the old federal road you shouldn't miss out on making a short detour (5 minutes) by walking down to the rushing waters of the Stuiben Falls. A truly rewarding experience!
