Description for the Trail
Traversing the Ötztal Valley from Haiming to the Gurgler Ferner glacier, this two-day trip offers several stretches of scenic vistas and countless pitches of supreme challenge. Day one delivers you to the Langtalereck hut (elev. 2,450m, also called Karlsruher hut) where you can spend the night if you wish. From there, the Ötztal Mountain Bike Trail sets a winding downhill course on singletrack and gravel roads through evergreen trees, eventually delivering thrilled riders to the valley floor.
