The stage begins with a gentle climb up to the hamlet of Bichl and the Matzlewald forest, where a mix of wide forest dirt roads and narrow rails takes runners up to feed station 1 at the Kielbergalm hut. From there, the route continues upwards towards the Aifnerspitze mountain and reaches the highest point of the day at 2,319 metres above sea level. This ascent is then followed by an attractive downhill section to the Aifner Alm hut, including fabulous views of the Kaunertal Valley. Runners continue down through the Braunebenwald forest to feed station 2 in Schnadigen. From here through to the finish in Ried im Oberinntal it is a mixture of singletrails, forest dirt roads and sections of tarmac road.
