Unlimited mountain bike fun – singletrack paradise in East Tyrol
bikeboard – Ronald Kalchhauser
Nestled between Großglockner and the Dolomites, there is unlimited cycling fun to be had. Wild nature, 266 three-thousand-meter summits (peaks higher than 9,500 feet) and countless downhill trails, singletracks, and service parks welcome you to East Tyrol. Altogether, the high Alpine landscape and the quiet, lonely valleys of East Tyrol offer over 310 miles (500 kilometers) of mountain bike trails. With the Grossglockner and the Dolomites in view, the routes are perfect for both less experienced mountain bikers and true experts. In this Collection, we present seven brand new trails in the Bikepark Lienz and in the Bikepark Großglockner Resort, which are waiting to be discovered by you. We also show you the best classics of the region, which you shouldn't miss.
For a long time, East Tyrol has been considered an insider tip, known only to a selection of serious mountain bikers. But now, the region — which is characterized in the north by the Hohe Tauern National Park and in the south by the Lienz Dolomites — has joined the ensemble of top Tyrolean MTB destinations. With as many as 266 3,000-meter (9,500-feet) peaks, the region is perfect for hikers and bikers alike — and with a designated network of world-class singletracks, East Tyrol is the perfect playground for your next big mountain biking adventure. And not only that: the new Bikepark Hochstein above Lienz offers the best conditions for downhill fans with the flow "Lakata-Trail". If you prefer classic singletracks instead, however, don't miss the high Alpine Glockner trails in Kals.
