Much of the mountain biking in the Stubai Valley leads through the lush meadows and pastures between Schönberg and Neustift – perfect for sporty families. The mountains are high, over 3,000 metres in places, with some offering challenging sections of singletrack.
The Stubai Valley is home to many intermediate trails up into the mountains. The north of the region is dominated by the Kalkkögel Mountains, while the south-east is where you will find the iconic Serles and the Habicht-Elfer ridge. The first village you will reach in the valley is Mieders, followed by Telfes – two good starting points. In Mieders there is a cable car whisking riders and their bikes up to 1,600 metres above sea levels. A little further south is the ski and hiking area Schlick2000 above Fulpmes, full of flower-filled meadows. We also recommend the ride to the lake. Things get more challenging around the village of Neustift. The local Elferbahn cable car gives quick and easy access to the Habicht-Elfer ridge with its singletrack trails. Before you set off, take the time to look south-west and you will see the highest mountain in the Stubai Alps: the 3,507-metre-high Zuckerhütl.
