The 5.2km long, easy to intermediate Wiesenalm Trail was opened in Zell in Zillertal Valley in 2012. Beginning at the mid-terminal of the Rosenalmbahn cable car, at an elevation of 1,310 metres, the “RideAble Project” singletrack snakes its way down into the valley. Discover how fun mountain biking can be on this fun trail with fast flowing descents and terrain for all abilities. Test your skills on expertly designed switchbacks, Northshore elements and pumps. The Wiesenalm Trail has been built by riders for riders and descends more than 700 vertical metres from top to bottom. Dedicated gondolas for carrying mountain bikes, special bike washing stations, a restaurant and a bike rental and service shop make it easy for bikers to enjoy the Wiesenalm Singletrack Trail.

Rosenalmbahn cable car (bottom station), Zell am Ziller
From the mid-way station of the Rosenalmbahn at 1,310 metres above sea level it is just 200 metres to the start of the trail. A large sign next to the top of the cable car points the way to the Wiesenalm Trail. After a short but steep uphill section, riders reach the forest trail and continue to a crossroads. This uphill section can be easily ridden on a downhill bike. After crossing the road, riders must push their bikes a few metres up to the start of the trail itself. The first section is characterised by many rollers and jumps. It then continues with an alpine pumptrack in the forest, followed by many banked corners and obstacles.
The trail crosses the road several times (always clearly signposted) and reaches difficulty level S2 on the singletrack scale. Flow, flowy sections are followed by more technical parts. The banked corners towards the bottom are particularly challenging and require good bike-handling skills. There are also a number of Northshore elements and bridges which have been fitted with slip-proof matting to ensure good grip event in wet conditions. Before reaching the bottom of the cable car, the trail winds its way down several switchbacks through a meadow. Near the cable car station there is a restaurant with a large terrace.
