The Schlägle Singletrack, also known as the Forest Thunder Trail, is the flagship singletrack trail on the Grubigstein mountain. It can be found in the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena and is popular with downhill enthusiasts in search of an adrenaline-pumping ride in the mountains. Root sections and rock gardens mean riders will need a suspension with plenty of travel. Though the trail is just 2 kilometres long, it features everything riders demand of a genuine downhill trail: jumps, rocks, roots, fast sections and berms. The trail is divided into three sections (black, red and blue), which are respectively rated between S1 and S3 on the singletrack difficulty scale. Overall the trail is challenging and therefore not suitable for beginners.

Parking at the bottom of the Grubigsteinbahn cable car in Lermoos


Trail description

The Grubigsteinbahn cable car transports riders quickly and easily from Lermoos up to 1,338 metres above sea level (middle station). Alternatively, riders can ride up via mountainbike route 804 (roughly one hour of riding).

Once at the middle station of the cable car, riders should follow the signs and proceed along the forest road for around 900 metres to access the clearly signposted start of the trail. Things get serious straight away, with no time to warm up. The 400 vertical metres of descent wind their way through a thick forest with lots of roots and gradients of up to 33%. Along the way there are a number of large and small jumps as well as wallrides and rock gardens. The trail features a number of very steep passages for experts only, which can be avoided by riders who are less experienced. The final challenge is the Big Jump shortly before the finish next to the bottom of the cable car. Plenty of airtime but not for the faint-hearted!

Tip! This trail can be easily combined with the Forest Aisle Trail, which starts at the Grubigalm, to add an extra 370 vertical metres of riding.
