Five flowing singletrack trails for downhill daredevils

From root carpets to high alpine trails, the following five Great Trails all have one thing in common: flow. This feeling of being in the moment and sweeping from one corner to the next can be experienced better than anywhere else on the Högtrail, the Fernar Trail, the Fleckalm Trail, the Peter Sagan Trail and the Plamort Trail. These five outstanding sections of singletrack represent the best of Tirol's more than 330 kilometres of singletrack trails.

The Great Trails were selected by a panel of expert judges based on the main criterion "all-in-one", which means they should combine challenging riding, spectacular views, family-friendly elements and, of course, that wow effect that makes downhill mountain biking so special.

"The Plamort Trail takes riders from Austria into Italy and contains everything that makes downhill riding so much fun. The view at the start is amazing. Riders can then look forward to a steep, rocky descent full of speed and flow all the way back to civilisation near the shores of the Reschensee lake."

Benedikt Purner, downhill tider & trail builder


"A great trail full of fun in the Kitzbühel Alps. An almost endless series of corners that will leave riders begging for more. Addictive!“


Steffi Marth, BMX and MTB Racer

"The Hög Trail is full of flow and aimed at riders of all abilities – from novices to experts."

Celine Blochberger, mountainbike and downhill guide

"The Peter Sagan Trail can be ridden nice and easy or super-fast. It has plenty of jumps, side hits and potential for gaps and tricks. The trail builders have been really creative. Fun, fun, fun!"


Peter Kaiser, dirt jumper, photographer and video producer


"When I first rode this trail, I was surprised how technical it was. What an adventure! Spectacular high-alpine landscape and steep, exposed sections on an official downhill trail for bikers only – unique in Tirol and something we definitely need more of."


Lars Lotze, mountainbike expert
