Although this is a demanding route for mountain-bikers in top condition, it does not require any special skills as it runs along good paths and tracks which are also in good condition through the forests and along the alpine routes.

The route runs from the center of Vaduz to the castle which lies way above the town and then continues on through the hamlet of Triesenberg past the Fromahus (Froma house), through Masescha and Gaflei and finally to the Maiensäss Silum, which lies at around 1400 m above sea level. The descent back to the start passes through Gnalp and the hamlets of Lavadina and Steinort, and then continues through the forest to Triesen and on to Vaduz without any more uphill stretches.
