Iss Tough

After an easy warm-up on the Iss Flow Trail, a short connecting trail leads riders to the start of Iss Tough. Steep, fast and not for the faint-hearted, this trail with its rollers and jumps is for experts only. After a portion of action concluding with a drop-off, the trail then joins back up with Iss Flow and continues down to the Rösslalm hut.

Trail description

All variations of the Isskogel Trails start at the top of the Isskogelbahn cable car with the Iss Flow Trail. After an easy first section, riders have the option of branching off onto the more challenging Iss Tough Trail. From the Iss Flow Trail there is a connecting trail to Seppi's Restaurant, where riders continue past the restaurant itself to the start of the intermediate Iss Tough Trail.

The trail begins with a short meadow section before entering the forest and winding its way down many switchback corners. After crossing a forest road, it turns sharp left and somewhat later crosses the Iss Flow Trail. Here riders have the option of riding either over or around a small drop-off. After a few steep corners underneath the cable car, the trail meets up again with the Iss Flow Trail and continues to the Rösslalm hut, where the Iss Shore Trail takes them down to the bottom.
