Trail description

Day 1: Wörgl - Reith im Alpbachtal
Elevation Gain/Elevation Loss: 1,000/900 metres, Distance: 35.5 kilometres, intermediate

The ride starts in Wörgl and follows the flat Inntal Cycle Path in a western direction. Shortly after Mauken, the road climbs steadily for a long 7.5 kilometres, but the effort is rewarded with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. Once you have passed remote Schwarzenberg, it’s only a short ride to Gasthof Holzlalm Inn, which is situated at an elevation of 1,450 metres. From there, it’s mellow riding with easy ups and downs to Hauseralm Alpine Pasture Hut, where the final climb atop Hauser Joch Col begins. From the col, it’s all downhill on varied terrain, passing Bischofer Alm, Naschberg and Scheffachberg on your way to Reith in Alpbachtal Valley, the destination of the first day’s ride.


Day 2: Reith im Alpbachtal - Niederau
Elevation Gain/Elevation Loss: 1,300/1,100 metres, Distance: 30.5 kilometres, intermediate

A quiet, scenic drive takes you from Reith im Alpbachtal to Alpbach. In Alpbach, the paved road merges onto a gravel road that climbs to Außerkolkaseralm Alpine Pasture Hut at an elevation of 1,650 metres. There, a 200-metre-long section of extremely rough terrain forces riders to haul their bikes by hand. The ride continues on singletrack to the other side of the mountain ridge where a fun downhill on gravel to Thierbach and Mühltal rewards for the uphill efforts of the day. From the small village of Mühltal, follow the road on the valley floor to Wildschönau and Niederau, the destination of this day.


Day 3: Niederau - Wörgl
Elevation Gain/Elevation Loss: 1,250/1,600 metres, Distance: 53.5 kilometres, intermediate

From Niederau it’s an easy ride via Pfaffenberg to the Wörgl Basin. From there, take the scenic cycle path that follows the Brixentaler Ache River to Hopfgarten. A short ascent to the Grinda snack station is followed by a leisurely downhill ride to Lendwirt, where the route resumes another short climb to Westendorf and Brixen im Thale. From Brixen, the road climbs steadily to Salvenberg Mountain, giving you a good workout. But the payoff for that work includes glorious views of the surrounding mountains. You will circle Salvenberg Mountain on its eastern side before dropping down to Söll past Silleralm and Hochsöll. The final 10 kilometres are flat, which makes for easy, fun riding to Wörgl, the destination end of this wonderful trip.
