Unutz Circular Ride

Route 461, the “Unnutz Circular Ride”, is ideal for bikers wanting a challenging tour through changing countryside. The trail offers everything from adrenaline-pumping descents to relaxing vantage points from which to enjoy wonderful views of Achensee Lake and the Seekarspitze peak in the distance.

  • A small pond with benches offers the ideal place to rest tired legs. The spot is named “Kaiser-Maximilian-Rast” after the famous Emperor Maximilian, who used to enjoy hunting in the region.
  • The Köglalm, Schönjochalm and Jausenstation Gasthof Waldhäusl in Steinberg am Rofan are great places to stop off for a drink and a snack.
  • The descent into the Schönjochtal Valley is a bumpy but entertaining ride. In autumn riders are treated to spectacular shades of orange and brown on their way through the leafy forest.
