There are tours in the near surroundings of Racines: Panoramatour in our valley Racines: The tour starts at the hotel and goes into the valley (direction of Flading/Valletina) until the Pulvererhof, where a trail takes you up the mountain (a bike sign helps you find the way). After the trail you need to push your bike just to cross one trail and then it goes up the ski slope. After a while you will reach the mountain cottage "Wasserfalleralm". A pathway brings you up to another mountain cottage - the "Kalcheralm". You can return to the hotel on the trail Nr. 13 or on the same path. Mountain pasture "Aglsboden" in Ridanna: This trail takes you into the other direction. You ride to Pardaun and then to Mareta where the tour starts to get into a steeper paste - ride into the valley of Ridanna until the end: Maiern. There you will cross the small river and a nice trail brings you to the mountain pasture "Aglsboden". On your way you can visit the flume "Burkhard" (not accessible with your bike).
