Bike Trail Tirol: Lower Ötztal

A perfect route for beginners with only a few easy ascents but plenty of wonderful downhill stages. The trail leads past Area 47, a huge adventure and outdoor playground at the entrance to Ötztal Valley, and the Tower Museum in Oetz to the Forchet Nature Preserve in Sautens.

  • This 37-kilometer long loop trail starts in Oetz: here the Oetz mountain gondola whisks you – and your mountain bike – effortlessly up to the peak. The top station is located beyond 2000 meters altitude.
  • Surrounded by the mighty Ötztal Alps and the Mieminger Kette limestone massif, the tour has a short downhill section followed by a smooth ascent right at the beginning, before you can enjoy a truly outstanding downhill adventure featuring no less than 1000 meters of altitude gain down to Inntal Valley and Haiming.
  • In the small village of Haiming, nestling in the foothills of the giant Tschirgang rockslide area, the trail meets the scenic and quite leisurely Inn Cycleway. Pedaling past lush meadows, deep green forests and romantic villages you return to Oetz.
