Three days in trail heaven – komoot pioneers in Saalfelden Leogang

Mountain Biking Collection by
Saalfelden Leogang

What would komoot be without all the athletes who share their experiences every day, including great photos and helpful tips so you can complete the same adventure? Every individual user turns a navigation app into a lively community and a boring bike ride into a tailor-made, unforgettable experience. That's why we reward our most hard-working users and appoint them as Pioneer. In cooperation with different tourism regions komoot organizes unforgettable "Pioneer Trips", on which our pioneers get to know each other and have a great time together. Pioneers Conor, Hamish and Dan were invited by Saalfelden Leogang to discover one of the most contrasting Alpine regions by mountain bike there.

Saalfelden Leogang has enough exhilarating rides to make a bike holiday last several weeks. But, you can also get to know the region very well on a weekend, especially if you choose the three trails in this Collection. From the action-packed day ride to a compact warm-up ride, we have put together three trail-packed excursions, all of which are best started from Leogang. From here, the Asitzbahn and the Steinbergbahn are, so to speak, your ticket to the region's mountains. An 8 or 10-person lift will take you up the mountain and directly to the start of the trails. At the top, you can enjoy the breathtaking view for a moment – and then you're ready to go!

The whole region is well prepared for bikers. Leogang, Saalbach and Hinterglemm are well-known holiday destinations among mountain bikers and the areas have accommodation options to suit every taste and budget. It is also extremely uncomplicated to get there by car or train: Leogang has its own train station with good connection across Germany, from Munich for example. And, if you ever need a day off, the region has plenty of activities that don't involve biking. Whether you like to visit music festivals, theaters or exhibitions – there's plenty to see and do for young and old.

Here, you will find the komoot profiles of our three Saalfelden-Leogang pioneers, who have already ridden this Collection for you. Maybe you'd like to follow them?

    More mountain bike action concentrated in one place can hardly be found anywhere else: The Bikepark Leogang offers beginners and professionals alike the best conditions to experience an unforgettable time on the bike. Kids can get a taste of the sport, downhillers can hone their skills to perfection, freeriders can experience a lot of airtime and enduro riders enjoy miles of flowtrails. Sounds good? It is! So grab your bike, sit down in one of the two lifts and off you go!This tour is a good example of how you can take as many trails as possible of the bike park under the tunnels and even make the right kilometer. This is made possible by the dense route network and the 8-seater Asitzbahn: so you can always be transported up in a few minutes and try on the way to the valley every time a different trail. The list of trails included in this tour is long: you'll ride the "Schwarzleo Trail", the "Steinberg Line by FOX", the "Matzalm Trail", the "Hot Shots - fired by Gopro" and the "Flying Gangster". And those are by no means all the trails the bike park has to offer. So your only problem will be the notorious agony of choice.Incidentally, Bikepark Leogang is one of the first and largest bike parks in Europe. Here you do not rest on deserved laurels, but is constantly working on new highlights. The new pump track is a good example. It provides the perfect setting for turning a few laps into the twilight after a great day on the bike! Incidentally, if you like downhill action at its finest, you should also make an appointment in the calendar in red: From 4 to 6 September 2020, the UCI Mountain Bike Downhill World Championships will take place in Leogang for the second time.Tip: "Hot Shots - fired by Gopro" and "Flying Gangster" have a lot of fun. Here you should definitely go with full visor helmet and protective clothing. If this is too wild for you, there is a great alternative: after the Schwarzleo Trail, you can walk about 200 vertical meters uphill and then whiz down the Forsthof Trail Tour, before you come to the Asitz or Steinbergbahn, which bring you to the Steinberg Line.

    Intermediate mountain bike ride. Great for any fitness level. Advanced riding skills necessary.

    On the day of arrival or departure, there is always this problem: Actually, you are totally in the mood to sit on the bike immediately (or briefly again) and enjoy a few trails. But most of the time is missing and it's just not worth it anymore. The Bikepark Leogang has the perfect solution to the problem: the Asitz gondola lifts you just under 1,000 meters in a few minutes. And with our tour suggestion, you do not even have to think about which way to go down. Because we have already met a fine trail selection, which results in a wonderful program to retract or farewell (or just for the small downhill in between).Right at the beginning Hangman I is waiting for you. On this trail it rappels pretty, so you're guaranteed awake! Half way, you can breathe deeply, enjoy the beautiful view again, shake your fingers and give you a refreshment in the Stöcklalm. Then it goes on: On the Flying Gangster you try airtime. Alternatively, let yourself be shaken up on the parallel World Cup track, or in the lower part on the challenging Bongo Bongo with tight turns, steps, root and stone passages, and North Shore Elementem.By the way: Even if the time is really tight, you can still enjoy a bit of fun on the bike by rolling a few laps over the bike park's new pump track. Built by pump track guru Claudio Caluori and his crew, it is paved and works well when it rains.Tip for saving foxes: When buying a lift day pass, this is already valid the day before from 15 clock.
