The X-Line is a demanding single trail. Over meadow, stone and forest floors, it goes down with lots of jumps, berms and tricky roots and technical passages. If you already have experience, this trail promises a high fun factor. The trail is about six kilometers long and, with over 1,000 meters of altitude, is one of the longest freeride routes in Europe, and is a lot of fun.
From the valley station of the Zwölferkogelbahn you continue on the Glemmtaler Landesstraße into the valley. At the Forellenhof you cycle over the bridge and continue on the cycle path into the valley head. After the barrier there is a slight uphill left on a forest road to the Lindlingalm. Here is also the Teufelswasser with all kinds of attractions for young and old.
