Mountain Bike Ride
Obermarkter Alm - Latschenhütte

This mountain bike ride starts in the town of Imst and leads up via a mixture of tarmac roads and dirt trails to the pretty Latschenhütte hut at 1,630 metres above sea level. Along the way, riders pass a peaceful forest and a tiny alpine zoo at the Obermarkter Alm hut. The Latschenhütte itself has a large, sunny terrace where guests can enjoy hearty local food. The ride is relatively short at 14.9 kilometres but nevertheless requires good fitness levels due to the steep profile.
