Trail description

This ride along route 232 begins at the Hahnenkamm car park startet in Kitzbühel and initially leads along the Hahnenkammstraße road and the Einsiedelweg road to the settlement of Schattberg. It is there that the twisting and turning ascent begins on a forest road, leading up past the Berggasthof Einsiedelei onto the Hahnenkamm mountain. Following the banks of the Ehrenbach stream, riders continue for around 6 kilometres up to 1,480 metres above sea level, where they turn off to the right just before reaching the Melkalm hut. The next section leads through open pastures and meadows towards the top of the Hahnenkammbahn cable car. After 1.5 kilometres, turn left towards "Ehrenbachhöhe" and ride past the Hahnenkammstüberl and Berghaus Tyrol buildings as well as the reservoir. The route then heads gently downhill in a southerly direction to the Hochbrunn-Alm hut. Just before you reach the hut, there is an uphill section. Follow the switchbacks to the Jufenkamm ridge. Shortly after passing the Brunn reservoir you will reach the summit of the Pengelstein mountain at 1,938 metres above sea level.
