Supertrails — the long way down

Mountain Biking Collection by
komoot

Adrenaline is pumping through your body, once you see a downhill and you can't wait to rock the track. Supertrails – it's all about the length. Sometimes also about the altitude you conquer on your way down. Beautiful long runs can be found at many places, from the Dolomites, over the Alps all the way to the middle of Germany. Often they are a combination of several great and varying singletrails. From easy and flowy to steep and technical, you can have it all.

Whoever said, the worlds luck lies on the back of a horse, has never tried Downhill or Enduro Biking. That incredible feeling of freedom, combined with excitement, pure concentration and endless fun. A Supertrail requires some endurance but you are rewarded with an amazing “high”. Once you made it to the end, when your hands are cramping, the legs are shaking, the lounge is burning and your heart is racing, you will only have one thought: AGAIN!

    Have you ever heard of Megavalanche? No? Then you should definitely look on Youtube times. So you have not seen such a mass start in a downhill race. The Megavalanche is one of the toughest downhill marathons in the world.The crazy Enduro race leads over snow, scree, through forests up to flowigen trails over meadows. And is overcome by amateurs who like to cuddle leisurely as well as downhill-experienced professionals.The first part leads over Glacier & Piste (which is a real spectacle especially at the mass start), then it gets challenging and rocky and in the lower part easier and more fluid to drive. Fun from top to bottom. This is not the original route and we'll save you a few meters in altitude that would lead you back uphill.But who knows, maybe next year you will stand in the field of competitors between 300-400 others per launch wave and rushes you in the turmoil of the glacier to the valley.

    After the drive to the Adolf Pichler hut, you will need a refreshing break for a while before continuing. Up to the Seejöchl up it is advisable to just shoulder the bike and trudge up.Once at the top you have a great view and you can see what awaits you on the first few meters. A narrow playful dirt road. That's it. Stony switchbacks alternate with flowing passages again and again.Shortly below the Starkenburger hut, you finally leave the rocks and mountains behind you, and there is woody, rooty soil. Everything that belongs to such a super trail.

    The driveway to the Schatzalp is quite leisurely up to the Strelepass then it pulls on again. The descent is a fantastic and slightly challenging but not very steep singletrack that leads over the Latschüelfurgga to the uncultivated Chörbschhornhütte.In the fall of 2015, the newly renovated singletrack down to Stafelalp was released. This is now a perfect section for all bikers and will make your heart beat faster.

    On the Stelvio Pass you can get up pleasantly with the shuttle bus. From here you push the short piece up to the top of the three-language peak before it goes down "endless" kilometers and altitude.In the beginning, flowig along the mountain side, then comes a piece, above the Furkelhütte, where you have to push your bike maybe a piece, about 300 hm. But then you drive down the Stilfseralm again with speed down. A beautiful trail with a magnificent view, which is recommended especially mountain bikers with experience.Information about the shuttle bus can be found here: bikeshuttle.it/bikeshuttle-vinschgau-home/local-travelplan.html

    A trail that many love. The so-called "Brazilian" can be reached via two cable car rides from Chalais. Arrived at the Crêt du Midi, the bike is first pushed up / carried the remaining approximately 300 hm. Once at the top, nothing stands in the way of a perfect descent. Flowing, long, great. Everything you dream of a super trail.Information about the cable car, which also serves as a means of local transport, can be found here: valdanniviers.ch/tourismus/seilbahn-chalais-briey-vercorin-vercorin.html

    Laces in the beautiful Vinschgau offers everything a biker's heart desires. Downhills, flowing single trails, rooted forest trails, crisp ups & downs, over 80 tours can be found here and the Chilli Supertrail is definitely one with the most sophisticated tour guidance.Option 1) Pounce up your own - Take a break - Step down. But you will probably do this only once, because 1000 meters up and down again consume something of the forces. Option 2) the gondola, but only works in the company of a guide and then limited in time. Ok, Option 3), of course, there is also: get someone to shuttle.No matter how you get there, the great 8 kilometers and 1000 meters of altitude down compensate you for all the effort!

    First of all do not worry: uphill it is by lift! We trust you so much but 3000 hm would be a bit covered. Of course you need a ticket for that, but it always pays off.This is a really great day tour for enduro connoisseurs. In addition to a lot of technical driving variety and a high Trailanteil this route is waiting mainly with scenic charms. The trails are all very natural, so you use what nature gives you - and that's a lot. As with many such long tours, you should not underestimate these conditions. Even if almost all vertical meters are covered by lift, it is the depth meters that demand all your skill and strength.Tour description:
    First time with the Laurin up to the Monte Coronelle. Then flowig around the mountains, to Moena, here's the lift Luisa up to the Valbona and then with Le Cune quite up.
     From here down the valley towards Predazzo. One last time with the lift Stalimen and then the Gardoné to Passo Feudo. The descent that follows here, you will not forget this descent all your life. Trails on trails of mountain trails on forest trails, joy without end.Okay, admittedly, an end comes after all. Passing Karersee and even more trail options, we head back to Welschnofen.What a day. Incidentally, information about the lifts can be found here: carezza.it/sommer/sommerlifte.html

    In the middle of the partly strictly protected biosphere reserve in the Rhön there is a really great and above all legal mountain bike tour, which comes up with a superlative. Because it contains the longest flow trail in Bavaria, which keeps its promises. The Supertrail Kreuzberg is probably the longest of its kind north of the Alps.And that's not all. Also, the Flow Trail Kreuzberg - a section on this tour - is quite unique and will inspire you. Take five to six hours and fight this mega ride with almost ten kilometers downhill in one go.Three quarters of the route consists only of trails. Your smile at this feeling you will not be able to lay it off for days. What can a biker's heart ask for more? On to Kreuzberg in Bavaria and have fun!

    Saalbach-Hinterglemm is a beautiful bike Eldorado, where there is something for everyone. The runs are really long and vary in difficulty, so beginners as well as experts get their money's worth.This trail combination is especially demanding in the upper section of the Bergstadl Trail. The Buchegg Trail in the lower part is much easier. If you want to take it a bit easier, just take the Hacklberg Trail and then turn off the Buchegg.

    Impressed not necessarily by altitude but by an incredible amount of driving pleasure: The 'Tafelfichte' Cross Country Trail. Here are several S1 trails to a big round of joy. You cruise between trees and enjoy the flow. Gorgeous driving with small uphill passages that never have more than 10% incline. All around great tour on great ground.The trails on the Czech-Polish border convince with handy, pump track-like surface and beautiful route. Here the maximum flow out of the elevation meters is taken out. Top!
