Magic trail at Laces
Altitude meters uphill: 409hm
Altitude meters downhill: 409hm
Fantastic trail with irrigation channels, ruins and apples at the southern edge of the forest in Laces.
Start at AquaForum and take the gravel path upwards (slight difference in altitude) on the so-called Rehpromenade and the fitness trail until you get to the irrigation system’s reservoir pond. Turn right before the bridge and follow the hilly trail through the cool forest winding along Hunter’s path and Neuwaal irrigation channel path until the Montani di Sopra castle ruin. The alternation between pedaling sections and slight downhill flow requires technical skills. The Montani di Sopra castle ruin awaits you with a wonderful view and the famous St. Stephen’s chapel with its frescoes. Technique fans will be enchanted by the fine hairpin trail before you return on relatively flat paths and along the Mareinwaal irrigation channel path. You can then enjoy a cool beer and a good dish along your way at Bierkeller, the pizzeria at AquaForum or in the village of Laces. Please note: Many “Share the Trail” sections! Descent and connection variants: Turn left towards Morter just after the cycle path below Montani di Sopra and then on the Morterer Leger route until the access to trails no. 2/3 or up to the Holy Hansen trail.
