Mountainbikers visiting the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena are spoilt for choice. This region near the German border is an ISO-certified Approved Bike Area, meaning it offers a comprehensive range of attractions and facilities for riders. Highlights include a number of singletrack sections, from an alpine pumptrack to technically challenging freeride descents and high-speed downhilling. The Forest Aisle Trail on the Grubigstein mountain is desgined for those who like nothing more than smooth, flowing descents. Experts can let it roll and build up speed through the banked corners, while beginners can take things a little slower as they learn the ropes. The whole trail is rated S2 on the singletrack difficulty scale.

Parking at bottom of Grubigsteinbahn lift
Taking the Grubigsteinbahnen I+II cable cars is the easiest and quickest way to access this trail. Alternatively, bikers can ride up to the Grubigalm via mountainbike routes 804 and 860. The ascent takes around 2 hours. From the top station of the cable car, take mountainbike route 864 along the forest road to the Grubigalm and then turn right onto the Forest Aisle Trail.
The 3.5km trail itself is not overly steep but very flowy, winding its way down through lush pastures, ski pistes and thick forests.The first section is dominated by long turns and banked corners. Then there is an alpine pumptrack which is relatively flat. After crossing the road for the first time, the trail enters a thick forest and has a series of tight swichbacks. This section is challenging, but less experienced riders can avoid it by staying on the forest road and rejoining the trail further down. After another short section along the forest road, riders can either take the Singletrail Schlägle (mountainbike route 855) or the easy gravel road to Lermoos.
Tip! The trail can be combined with the Schlägle Singletrack (also known as the Forest Thunder Trail) to add an extra 360 vertical metres of riding. The trail starts near the middle station of the Grubigbahn lift and ends in Lermoos. It is relatively tricky and requires riders to have good bike-handling skills.
