From the town center of Naturno, we take Via Stazione / Bahnhofstraße which leads us to a bridge, the starting point of the cycle path on the Lungoadige / Etschdamm. We turn left on the cycle path towards Merano. Arrived in Rablá we turn right, pass over the bridge to get to the cable car of Rio Lagundo. From Rio Lagundo we take the asphalt street and follow the signs to San Vigilio. After a barrier the asphalt street turns into a forest path that leads us to San Vigilio (1760m). Just before San Vigilio we arrive at a crossroad where we turn right, into the forest road nr. 27 that brings us towards the "Naturnseralm" hut. At a crossroad, just before the "Narturnseralm" hut we keep on the right to get to the car park "Kreuzbrünnl", where we turn left and follow the signs to the "Mauslochalm" hut. Just before we arrive at the hut we reach the entrance of the "Ötzi Trail" (trail nr. 5). The S3 trail offers us everything a mountainbiker needs. From flowy sections in the upper part to really rocky and blocked but always drivable sections in the lower part. At the end of the trail we reach Cirlano and from there we return to Naturno to end our tour.
