From Merano (325 hm) the cycle path leads along the main road towards the Val Passiria. Before the bridge at the entrance to the Passeier Valley, we turn right and follow the cycle path to St. Leonhard (688 hm).
The Passer, which flows through the Passeier Valley, is crossed, at Riffian you pass the sports field and at Saltaus the cycle path passes under the Hirzer cable car.
At St. Martin we cross a covered wooden bridge and one kilometre before the destination St. Leonhard im Passeier we reach the fairground. From there you can turn off to the Sandwirt - Andreas Hofer's birthplace with a museum - or continue cycling to St. Leonhard.

The cycle path into the Passeier Valley has a gravel surface at the beginning, then it has a fine-grained surface. Bikers share the cycle path with pedestrians and horse riders.
