Bike Ride
Scharnitz – Reith bei Seefeld

This ride takes bikers across the Seefeld Olympic Region, from the pretty village of Scharnitz to Reith bei Seefeld. The first section is nice and easy, winding its way through the valley without any serious uphill sections. Much of the riding is through pine forests and along rushing streams. Shortly before Seefeld there is a small climb of 180 vertical metres. E-bikes can be recharged in Scharnitz and Seefeld.

Trail description

The ride begins at the last stage of the Isar Cycle Path, at the northern end of the village of Scharnitz. The forest trail starts at the "Schanzweg" near the Isarbrücke bridge and initially heads south. After just a few minutes it merges with the Schanzweg once again. Turn sharp left here and, at the next crossroads, turn right onto the Innsbrucker Straße. Riders then continue for a few kilometres through the village, over the Isar river and then parallel with the Gießenbach stream uphill to the Gewerbegebiet Gießenbach industrial park. A short section along the busy main road towards Leutasch then follows. When you reach a small car park next to the Bodenbach stream, turn left off the road and onto the forest trail. The ride continues through the forest, along the banks of the Drahnbach stream, all the way to Seefeld – passing Bodenalm and Wirtshaus Triendlsäge. Once you get to Seefeld, cross the village. Take the Leutascher Straße and later a number of smaller roads past the railway station. At the southern end of the village, ride past the Wildsee lake, then through a forest before crossing over to the other side of the Mühlbach stream. Head north for a short while, over the bridge and past the Bienenhotel, before heading downhill through the forest to Reith bei Seefeld. The ride ends at the railway station. From there you can take the train ("S-Bahn" or "Regionalexpress") back to Scharnitz. The journey takes 17 minutes.
