Mountain Bike Ride

This mountain bike ride leads around the Guffertspitze peak in the Rofan Mountains, part of the Brandenberg Alps, all the way to one of the most beautiful spots anywhere in Tirol. Along the way there are plenty of places where riders can dip their feet in cool water. Leaving from the Kaiserklamm gorge near Aschau, the ride leads 40 kilometres and 1,000 vertical metres up to the Gufferthütte hut. The terrain is a mix of tarmac roads and forest trails along the banks of the Brandenberger Ache river, through idyllic forests and across lush meadows.

Trail description

This ride begins at the "Kaiserhaus" building next to the Kaiserklamm gorge. Head along the road following route 465 and the Brandenberger Ache river in a south-westerly direction. At the turning near Pinneg, go right onto the up-and-down route to Steinberg am Rofan. There, switch to the main road, ride past the Obringermoos-Alm hut (at the foot of the Grünkopf mountain), all the way to the Köglboden car park. It is here that the climb to the Gufferthütte hut begins. Take the forest road along routes 464 and 465 up to the Gufferthütte hut. From the hut, descend 300 metres back along the way you came, then turn left and head back in an easterly direction towards the "Kaiserhaus" building. The trail leads downhill along route 465 to the Brandenberger Ache river. After crossing the bridge, turn right and follow the banks of the river in a southerly direction. A short uphill section near the Kaiserklamm gorge is followed by a short descent to the "Kaiserhaus" building on the left.
