During work on the new Arzler Alm Trail there was the opportunity to reshape the Hungerburg Trail to create a completely new line. "Short and sharp" is very much the name of the game now. The trail starts with plenty of forest flow before meeting the new Arzler Alm Trail after around half a kilometre of riding. All sections of the Hungerburg Trail are rated S2 on he difficulty scale.

The journey from the centre of Innsbruck to the Hungerburg cable car station overlooking the city can be completed by using the Hungerburgbahn funicular from the Congress Centre (10 minutes) or the J bus (20 minutes). From the carpark at the bottom of the cable car it is just a five-minute ride in an easterly direction to the start of the trail, which is clearly signposted.
Alternatively, bikers can ride up to the bottom station of the Hungerburg cable car from the centre of Innsbruck via the settlement of Mühlau in the east. Follow the Inn Cycle Path downstream past the Löwenhaus inn as far as the footbridge with a wooden roof. Cross this and climb on the other side up to the Alpenzoo. From the zoo, take the trail through the forest to the first crossroads. Here, turn left and follow the signposted mountainbike route to the start of the trail.
The Hungerburg Trail is a natural trail of intermediate difficulty with plenty to offer for downhill enthusiasts. It descends around 100 vertical metres on its way down through the forest towards the valley floor. Along the way there are a number of artificially built obstacles and jumps (Doubles). After around 500 metres the trail meets the lower section of the Arzler Alm Trail (rated S2 on the difficulty scale), which in turn leads down to the edge of the city.
After a quick bikewash at the funicular station next to the Löwenhaus inn, it is time to ride back up on the monorail and do it all again!
