The cycle path continues along the Ache to the Köfels junction and on a gravel path towards Au. At the end of it, an asphalt path leads above the roaring Ötztaler Ache over two newly built and spectacular bike bridges. After the second bridge, turn left into a steep forest. At the end of the forest, an underpass leads to the other side of the street. At the next intersection, turn right to Winklen, passes through the hamlets of Oberried, Lehn and Unterried and finally arrive at Längenfeld.
We strongly recommend to follow the route of the Ötztal Cycle Trail, otherwise you have to follow longer stretches on the busy Ötztal federal road.
