Mountain Bike Safari Stage 08: Steinach am Brenner – Tulfes

When it comes to elevation gain (400m), this ride is quite pleasant. The easy to intermediate route starts with a mellow descent.

In total, this segment has a pedalled vertical drop of 1,000 meters. Tirol Bike Park atop Bergeralm in Steinach boasts two world class downhill trails with varying terrain for all abilities. From Matrei, the trail largely shares with the historic Roman Road which leads back to Wipptal Valley. This route runs round the foot of Patscherkofel, the iconic mountain of Tirol’s capital Innsbruck, and eventually leads to Tulfes, the destination end of this ride.
