Parking at the bottom of the Gaisbergbahn lift in Kirchberg
The start of the trail can be found next to the Gaisbergbahn chairlift at 1,264 metres above sea level. Riders can either take the chairlift or ride up to the top of the trail from Kirchberg using mountainbike route 203. It takes around 1.5 hours to climb the 450 vertical metres. The start of the trail itself is marked with a large wooden archway. The first section is easy, before things get more technical after passing the "Blattlhof" hut. This second section is rated black (experts only) and comprises a 2km passage with plenty of roots, berms, drops and tables. The trail finishes close to the bottom station of the Gaisberglift cable car.
