Trail description

From the centre of Innsbruck, this ride leads along the pretty Inn Cycle Path as far as the village of Terfens. The following 20 kilometres continue along the banks of the Inn river, gently downhill and at top speed.

From Wattens, head north into the centre of neighbouring Fritzens (approx. 4km). At the roundabout take the steep road leading northwards up onto the mountain. Follow this road as far as Schlögelsbach and then onto the high plateau to Gnadenwald with its well-known Gasthof Speckbacher Hof inn serving food and drink.

After a quick stop for a drink and a snack, riders continue along the L225 road down to Absam and then Hall in Tirol. Cross over the Inn river and complete the last section from Ampass back to Innsbruck.

Tip! Opposite the Gasthof Speckbacher Hof inn riders have the option of taking the toll road leading up to the Hinterhornalm hut overlooking the Inn Valley. The climb is relatively tough (6.2km in length and 620 vertical metres) but rewards riders with fabulous views as far as Innsbruck.
