D1 - Jaukenalm
After only a few kilometres the tour leads over the Goldberg, whose name refers to the mining industry.
The Jaukenalm is a sporting challenge for bikers. It is situated high above the valley in a privileged location in the midst of a hilly alpine landscape. From the Jauken you can see the bizarre mountain ranges of the Carnic Alps in the south, which offer many biking tours. A connection to the northern Drau Valley is unfortunately not possible by mountain bike. The return journey is along the same route to St. Daniel.
Passable during the alpine pasture management time (with open barrier at Goldberg)!
Some impressions of the tour
KM 1.2 At the fork in the road, turn left uphill towards "Goldberg".
KM 4.2 About 30 metres before the church, turn right uphill to the beam/gravel road. From km. 4.3 onwards a firm, compact gravel track begins, which continues to the Jaukenalm. Follow this path further. Especially in the second section of the ascent to the Jaukenalm, the path on the southern slope is sometimes very exposed to the sun.
KM 11 Tip: The south-facing, bizarre mountain ranges of the Carnic Alps offer wonderful photo opportunities from km 11.0 onwards.
KM 13 The Jaukenalm lies in the middle of a hilly mountain landscape. The alpine hut has been newly built and offers a majestic view to the south. The tour follows the same route back to the starting point at the bridge in St. Daniel.
