The clue's in the name! Trailriders wishing to follow in the tracks of World Cup rider Lisi Osl need look no further than the Lisi Osl Trail in Kirchberg. Named after the region's most famous daughter, this 3km XC trail offers plenty of great riding and starts at the top station of the Gaisbergbahn chairlift at 1,270 metres above sea level. Descending 450 vertical metres, it includes flowy sections and lots of tight switchbacks. Beginners will enjoy the chance to test their skills on the banked corners, easy steps and root sections, while advanced riders can use the steps for a little air time above the forest floor. The trail is rated S2 (intermediate) throughout and is therefore ideal for keen trailriders of all abilities.

Parking at the bottom of the chairlift
The adventure begins with a ride up to the top of the Gaisbergbahn chairlift. Those in search of a challenge can eschew the mechanical option and instead ride up from Kirchberg along mountainbike route 203. The climb of around 450 vertical metres takes roughly 1.5 hours.
A wooden archway with a large photo of Lisi Osl marks the start of the trail. The first section comprises many turns and switchbacks, some of which are long enough to cruise around at high speed. The trail crosses the forest road on seveal occasions, though each crossing is clearly signposted. The top section also features a number of wooden Northshore elements, while the bottom section of this forest trail is faster and more flowy. It ends at the bottom station of the Gaisbergbahn lift.
Tip! The Gaisbergstüberl next to the top station of the lift is a good place to stop off for a snack and a drink. It has a large sunny terrace and fantastic views of the surrounding mountains.
