The starting point is at the sports field in Längenfeld. From there you cycle towards Camping Platz and there you branch off onto the Ötztal cycle path (No. 11). Follow these up into the valley to the Huben district until you reach the fun park. Immediately after crossing the small bridge, turn right and follow the signs for Polltal - Breitlehn Alm. The forest path now leads moderately upwards in serpentines. Here you gain a few meters in altitude. After almost 7 km you reach the Polltal Alm. With a moderate incline, the forest path continues to the right in the direction of the Breitlehn Alm. You will be rewarded with a wonderful view of the surrounding mountains.
