The sunny tour up to the Hohe Salve!
This tour leads you from the tourist information office in Hopfgarten to the sunny side of the Hohe Salve. By the way, to shorten the climb, just take the cable car to the middle station (Sektion I) and save ca. 1 hour. Start right at the bottom station of the cable car and ride uphill along the road Lindrainweg (to the right). Follow the signs “Rigi, Hohe Salve” (mtb route 269) and go on past Sunnseithüttn, the middle station and the mountain inn Gasthof Tenn until you get to a crossing. Follow the road to the left which takes you down to a farmhouse and to the beginning of a steep gravel path. Follow this partly steep path until the highest point of the tour. After a descent of only a few metres you get to a forest path which winds up in few curves to the Rigi, at 1533 m above sea level (connecting route n° 268). The descent leads you first along a busy forest path to Gasthof Schlossblick and further on to Itter, the so-called “village of roses”. From there, after 700 metres along the main road, a nice forest path will lead you back to Hopfgarten via Hacha. Free parking place: in the centre of Hopfgarten – P2/ Zentrum parking area or in the direction of Kelchsau on the gravel parking lot of Wasserfeld.
