Itinerary description

This track starts softly in lava sand and ends with a rocky section. Don't underestimate the soft sands as well as the climbing section(s). You'll need diff lock and low gear. In the "along the river" section there is one deeper crossing so be prepared. And last but not least: this track provides a visual memory overflow. Unbelieveable nature and this track goes just through it.
