Mountain Bike Ride
Hinterhornalm - Walder Alm - Ganalm

This mountain bike ride in the Karwendel Mountains takes in not one, not two but three huts: the Hinterhornalm at 1,522 metres, the Walder Alm at 1,500 metres and the Ganalm at 1,190 metres. Plenty of choice, then, when it comes to food and drink en route! The ride leads through the Karwendel Nature Park, the largest nature park in Austria, and offers fabulous views of the Inn Valley throughout.

Trail description

From the car park at the bottom of the toll road leading up to the Hinterhornalm hut, take this steep and twisting road heading in a north-easterly direction all the way up to the Hinterhornalm hut. There, the tarmac road ends and merges with a dirt trail. Follow this in an easterly direction. At the first point where the trails cross, head straight on. At the second crossing, turn left to the Walder Alm hut. Then follow route 408 to the Ganalm. The section from the Walder Alm to the Ganalm is around 4.3 kilomtres long and relatively easy, though there are some steeper downhill sections towards the end. From the Ganalm the route then leads via the Ganer Klamm gorge for another 3.5 kilometres downhill to Windbruch. All that then remains is the final eight-kilometre section via Umlberg, Schlögelsbach, Innerwald and Kranzach back to the starting point in St. Martin near Gnadenwald.
