From Eggen, we take the path no. 0 eastwards towards the Oberlehnerhof farm, and then on to the Fleckerhof farm. We then cross over the road of Obereggen, turn left after the farm, along the gravel quarry road then uphill across the meadows. After two short, steep ramps, we come to path no. 8, by a hairpin bend. This route takes us south-east across a meadow, followed by a flat section, and after two fences, we turn right across the meadow (path no. 10). When we reach a small group of houses, we take the main road to Obereggen, then climb uphill for around 2 km until the lift station. Behind the car park, path no. 9 starts off towards the Bewaller guest house. After a slight descent past the Bewaller guest house, we turn into path no. 8, towards the Karer lake. We cycle past the lake, firstly along path no. 12, then no. 10 towards the Karer Pass. At the junction opposite the Grand Hotel, we follow path no. 13 uphill. This leads to path no. 21, which we take until we reach the mountain station of the Hubertus aerial tram.
We can take the pass path no. 519 (a detour to Malga Secine is also possible), and after a climb of around 550 metres, we cycle downhill towards Moena. On the cycle path by the river, we turn off in a southerly direction towards Predazzo. After 15–20 minutes we reach the valley station of the Latemar cable way (note the midday closing times of the cable way). We take the lift to the Feodo Pass at a height of 2,200 m. We follow the ski slope and trail (no. 504–521) downhill until we reach the Zischgalm guest house. We continue across the alpine meadow trail in the direction of Obereggen until the Laneralm. We turn left onto the 'Großwiesen' (path no. 10), and when the road forks into routes 11 and 10, we remain on path no. 10 and take the road, with some steep downhill sections, to Obereggen. We continue along a short section of asphalt road then turn right on path no. 10 back towards Ega.
