    The Schwarzleotal is a "cool" tip for mountain bikers, especially on hot summer days. Always along Schwarzleobach it goes 500 meters uphill to the valley. Here is still a short sliding distance with just under 150 vertical meters increase!Over a short forest and meadow path you reach the Lindlalm. This cozy and authentic alpine hut, with a wonderful panorama and Almidylle pure, lets you forget about the ascent. At the "Resi" on the Lindlalm, it's worth the effort alone, because of the rustic charm that the landlady exudes. You should definitely taste the so-called "Almwuzl"!Tip: This tour can be ideally combined with a hike to the Spielberghorn. Walking time from the Lindlalm: approx. 1.5 hours. Attention: sure-footedness required!
