When passing Lake Pflegersee with its splendid views of Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the surrounding mountains, across the meadows of the Reschberg Mountain, and the former haunt of the famous bear Bruno, go uphill to the mountain pasture Enning-Alm. At an altitude of 1,544 m, from the beginning of July until mid-September, you can see young cattle, goats and horses, all grazing together on the lush green meadows between the Felderkopf and Hirschbühel Mountains.

From the parking site in front of the station go right, pass the travel agency and pedal down Bahnhofstraße. At the traffic light, turn left onto Parkstraße. Follow its course to the major intersection. Here you should turn right along Burgstraße. After ca. 500 m turn left onto Thomas-Knorr-Straße and follow the sign to "Pflegersee". Soon you will see an information board providing orientation. At Lake Pflegersee, a restaurant and beach await you. Along the eastern bank continue on, following the signs to "Reschbergwiesen/Enning-Alm". Now, the way continues uphill for 14 km on a well-developed gravel path. On your right you can catch the first glimpse of the Loisachtal Valley. Soon the path turns more level and up ahead you will see the meadows of Reschberg Mountain. Here you will be at an altitude of roughly 870 m, so you already managed the first 200 m altitude difference. At the large junction keep left and follow the cycling signs to the Enning-Alm. Stay on the forest track, which soon turns considerably steeper. Ahead of you will be the first of two longer climbs. Finally, you will pass a small Alpine hut, in front of which a bench and magnificent view invite you to take a breather. Unfortunately the hut is not attended. Now, take on the second climb that is even steeper than the first one. Then, the way goes downhill for a short while. Be careful not to miss the sign to Enning-Alm, which will suddenly pop up on your right. Go uphill to the right. It may be better to push your bike on the very steep climb (including steps) through the forest. Then, the forest clears and you will see the Enning-Alm with a large well to cool down at. The way continues westward and goes downhill, sometimes in steep and bumpy switchbacks, where you should get off your bike and walk it. In leaving the switchbacks behind, you make it to a forest track, leading slightly uphill to the left. Passing the Alpine hut Rotmoosalm go downhill to the Ochsenhütte and on the state road B23. Turn left onto an excellent cycle track, which will lead you via Grainau to Garmisch-Partenkirchen and back to your starting point.
