At the second roundabout after the descent directly at the river Inn, you turn into the Inn cycle track. Then you follow that track till the german- austrian border. There you turn right away from the cycle track and towards Niederndorf. After passing Niederdorf and reaching Sebi you continue, shortly after Sebi, left on Pöttingersteigung.
