Example of a blue route


The ideal mountaibike tour for beginners: The 11 km lenght of the route and the elevation gain of 200 m are suitable for those who are not trained mountainbikers. The simple to drive gravel road in the Schönachtal is only moderately steep. The scenerey though is one pf the hoghlights of the region. The Issalm, the reversal point of the tour, is surrounded by majestic rock formations and at the end of the valley the Schönachglacier and the Zillerkopf loom high in the sky. The tops of the Schönachschneid and the Zillerkopf are at almost 3000 m altitude. The Lackenalm is both on the way up and the way down a very nice place to rest and have something to eat and/or eat.

Finkenberg - Breitlahner - Schlegeis - Dominikushütte

From Finkenberg-Dornau over the Teufelsbrücke (the devilsbridge, a rare example of ancient Tyrolean timber construction), followed by some turns and  downhill over the asphalted road over the Jochberg, along the romantic Zemmschlucht and moderately upwards in the direction of Ginzling. Through the village, along some small farms and the power plant of Rosshag to Breitlahner. From the tollbooth at Breitlahner along the forest road to the Schlegeis reservoir. Directly above the parking area at the Schlegeis-dam you will find the Dominikushütte. With a stunning view over the lake and the Schlegeis-glacier you will be spoiled with Tyrolean specialties either on the sunterrace or in the restaurant.

Round trip Sidanalm - Rastkogelhütte

From the tollbooth at Schwendberg over a gravel road you will find a route over the Sidamalm to the Rastkogelhütte. Until the Sidanjoch you have to cope with a single-trail, which is suitable for the experienced mountainbiker. You can also drive this single-trail on the way back. From the Rastkogelhütte to the starting point a gravel and asphalt downhill awaits  you.

Almdudler Himmelfahrt and Höllenritt

Mountain bikers discovered the potential of the Penken long ago. Freeriders particularly like the narrow trails – so-called singletracks.The “Himmelfahrt - Ascension Trail” is of medium difficulty and offers in addition to a slightly easier route, plenty of varied options for experienced mountain bikers and action lovers.

The difficulty of the route can be varied with challenging obstacles and various North Shore elements. Freeriders can test their skills on jumps, banked curves and wave lines. Only natural materials such as wood, earth and stone were used for the construction of the North Shore obstacles. Of course, all obstacles can be easily avoided by taking the "chickenway" out.

At the end you can either carry on cycling through the Horberg Valley on existing bike trails back down to your original starting point at the Penken Lifts, or take the „Almdudler Höllenritt - Ride to Hell“ trail back down to the valley. This was specifically created for advanced downhill mountain bikers.
