TK 3 - Terrain cure walking paths 3 - Scharspitzenring beautiful, slightly demanding terrain cure path

Follow the TK 3 sign in the direction of the summer bobsleigh track. After about 150 m you will reach a trail and a cycle path (crossroads), keep to the left and continue along this path for about 300 m. When you reach the Sonnenhofweg, keep to the right first and then turn left at the next opportunity. Via Bergstrasse you reach the B170. Cross the B170 and continue down the hill (there is a supermarket on the left). Follow the signs for TK3 via Neue Straße (above "Aschergraben"). The route leads you to a steep forest path (formerly a bobsled track). After about 500 m you will reach the top of the Scharspitze, where there is a wooden shelter for tourists with an information board about the history of the old bobsled track. Take a short break, enjoy the peace and quiet and then continue straight. After about 200 m keep right, the road leads slightly downhill. At the next junction, turn right onto the Langegasseweg, which takes you to Altenberg and back to the starting point of the route. At the top of the road you can see the famous Altenberg Pinka.
