Up & down — mountain passes and singletracks for experts

Mountain Biking Collection by
komoot

Do single tracks make your heartbeat increase? Do you drag yourself up the steepest mountains just to find the perfect downhill straight? If so, this one’s for you. It’ll make you pedal to reach some serious altitude and to get on paths that’ll demand you to carry your bike to get to the highest point — all that for the descent. But what a downhill experience it will be! To ride down these little tracks that will lead you back into the valley you will need technical experience, endurance and some guts. But hey! What’s more fun than riding the obstacles Mother Nature built for you? That’s pure happiness.

Along the tour, narrow and steep paths will force you to find the ideal line from switchback to switchback. Especially in the upper sections, these trails will demand your expert downhill and sometimes vert-ride skills. And even though the tracks become smoother and easier in the lower sections, the mixture of adrenalin and endorphins coursing through your veins will leave you with a broad smile on your face while you roll the last meters into the valley.

Once you’re down there, you will already have forgotten how hard the ascent was. That demands a second run! And as you know, the better you know a track, the more fun you’ll have hurtling downhill.

    From Immenstadt it goes comfortably through the Steigbachtal to Almagmach. Then follow a few steep ramps to the Mittelbergalpe. From here you follow the Stuiben up the ever steeper Trail. With a bit of pressure and driving skills, however, you can definitely drive to the summit.From the summit, after a break about 50 m back to the saddle and then on the technically challenging trail (S3) down to Rothenalm, Ornachalpe and further in the forest with numerous tight serpentines to Gunzesrieder saw and back to Immenstadt.

    From Sulden a very steep gravel road leads you up to the Schaubachhütte. From here we flatter it and it goes on to the ski area up to more than 3000 altitude meters. You can drive to about 3050m, followed by a short sliding piece.
     
    It starts at the beginning very demanding. Less savvy drivers, pushing or carrying their bike here better, because it goes first in tight turns on loose sandy bottom steeply down. Then there are short rocky sections with stairs, steps and Spitzkehern. After 200 meters of altitude, however, the whole transforms into fantastic flow trails, partially eroded gullies, alpine meadows, and again and again a little rock and boulders. A must for Donwhill lovers - 1500 hm Singetrail in one go!
    An absolutely magnificent glacier landscape and one of the highest bike-accessible passes ever! In addition, an absolutely brilliant downhill is added.

    Cozy it goes to Einödsbach and then up through the Rappental. Cycle up to Schrofenpass and then carry the bike for a while. The effort pays off once you get to the top. Fantastic! Down it's only on an S3 Trail and then on S2 before you come back on the road and leisurely bike to Lech.

    Up it goes over tar roads and gravel roads. From the first pass it's time to push for an hour. But then it goes down over a colorful mix of single trails, gravel roads and finally tarred roads. It's a really beautiful pass, with great views. It is best to bring a lot of time and spend the night in a hut before returning to the valley.

    First a tarred road leads into the Valle di Federia, then it goes over to a slightly rising gravel road. At about 2100 meters altitude the steep gravel road branches off to Rifugio Cassana. It may be that you have to dismount and push here. From the Rifugio there are then almost 90 hm sliding piece up to the pass.Hintunter goes through a demanding singletrack, which then becomes easier in the lower part and turns into a meadow trail. Neat driving skills you should bring but if you want to enjoy the descent.

    Past the castle Neuschwanstein direction Bleckenau (sometimes extremely steep gravel road), further up to the maple saddle. Then comes a very demanding S3 downhill to Ochsenängerle. A short gravel road leads to the Jägerhütte and then on a simpler single trail (S1-S2) down to the Plansee.

    Hike up & bike down! You save the first part of the uphill and take the cable car up to Jungu. Then it gets exhausting, because it goes up 1000 meters - push or shoulder, it is hard. The last 300 meters are steep but on serpentines with good path to cope.The effort pays off! Your reward is namely 1,200 vertical meters downhill on a dream trail in the alpine terrain. Above it is technically demanding, rocky and blocked, below it's flowig and easier in serpentines through the forest.

    Nearly 3000 meters. Mobile up to the Laziser Alm on good forest, then it says for 1000 meters of pushing or carrying. But worth it for good downhill drivers!Down it's over a beautiful trail of about S2 and with a bit of ability also continuously mobile.

    First it goes over the road and then on the gravel road up to the Rifugio Bozzi. Then again 200 hm wait until the pass, the Forzellina di Montozzo.And it goes down on one of the best singletrack in the Alps. Technically demanding and with fantastic views of the Lago Pian. Mega Tour.

    Uphill it goes first on a tar road and then on gravel, easy to drive. It's down to a downhill classic on Lake Garda - through tunnels and countless hairpin bends on an eroded gravel road.From the Passo Guil it is technically much more difficult. Here you have the option to turn left in the direction of Ledro, if your driving skills are not yet well-versed.Conclusion: easy ascent and a grandiose descent!
