St. Anton is about more than just winter sports. After the ski pistes thaw in spring, they reveal a vast network of trails ideal for mountain bike enthusiasts. If you're one of them, you'll find exactly what you're looking for in this beautiful region. Here, the incredibly diverse landscape means that you have the choice to experience precisely the type of ride you like the most, from easy spins through flower fields to steep athletic challenges over rough, Alpine terrain. And if you like it fast, there’s even another highlight for you: The “Bike Areal Eldorado” is home to various trails and tracks on which you can refine your technique with the help of local experts. And once you've honed your new skills, you can get to work at conquering the surrounding downhill rides—and make this Alpine biking trip truly unforgettable.
This balanced tour takes you from the village of Schnann to the foot of the highest mountain of the Verwall group, the Hohe Riffler. Even on a hot summer day, you can drive up here super, because large parts of the ascent lie in the forest, which provides sufficient shade. Once at the top you will be rewarded with a stunning view of the Parseier Group.
Get recommendations on the best single tracks, peaks, & plenty of other exciting outdoor places.
Here we have picked out a simple Almtour up to the Nessleralm above Pettneu for you. After the good 500 meters up to the Alm you will be rewarded with a wonderful panorama. The Hohe Riffler, the Lechtal Alps, as well as the Stanzertal extend in front of you. Due to the southern position of the Nesselalm and its relatively low altitude, you can often go up far into late autumn.
After arriving at the Rendl mountain station by gondola, you will descend into the Moostal Valley. Further you follow the trail towards Tritschalm over lush meadows. Arrived at the bottom of the valley it goes left to Rossfallalm and across the river to Trischalpe - both highly recommended and since the decision would be difficult, you best try both from the same!
The Rendlbahn brings you and your bike in the blink of an eye to the right height. From the mountain station, a breathtaking mountain bike panorama trail leads up to the Rendlalm, where a pleasurable break awaits. Then follows a fantastically beautiful, rapid descent into the valley.
This very easy tour takes you on predominantly good bike paths through the valley, where you can ever gather an impression of the surrounding alpine world. On the way you will pass a beautifully situated barbecue area with Kneipp bathing area. Super Tour for a start to the holidays!
As if the turquoise-blue beaming Verwallsee and the Rosanne valley are not enough reason for a trip, a well-equipped bike park awaits you at the foot of the valley. In the Eldorado, you can optimize your technique on various trails in order to really accelerate in the surrounding mountains. There you can borrow appropriate bikes and protective gear and you are also constantly supported by experienced downhill bikers with help and advice.
