Mountain Bike Ride
Gaistalalm & Rotmoosalm

This mountain bike ride leads through the beautiful Gaistal Valley, along the banks of the Leutascher Ache river, to the Gaistalalm hut and on to the Rotmoosalm hut at 2,030 metres above sea level. While the section through the Gaistal Valley is relatively easy, the climb to the Rotmoosalm hut, situated at the foot of the Predigtstuhl mountain, is challenging due to its steepness and rough surface. The reward for all that hard work comes in the form of fine views and an untouched natural landscape.

Trail description

The ride begins at the Salzbach car park in Leutasch. Turn left over the bridge and then ride along the gently ascending forest trail parallel to the Leutascher Ache into the Gaistal Valley. Stay right on route 553 and, after around seven kilometres, turn right towards "Gaistalalm". This hut is located at 1,366 metres above sea level. To get to the Rotmoosalm hut, follow the trail north. At the foot of the Predigtstuhl mountain continue uphill in a northeasterly direction. After several switchback corners in the forest, head past the old building previosuly home to the Rotmoosalm and you will soon find yourself entering the open pastures around the new Rotmoosalm at 1,850 metres. Cross over the Leitenbach stream and, after around 1.5 kilometres, head east to the Rotmoosalm hut itself at 2,030 metres above sea level. High above stands the mighty summit of the Schönberg mountain.
