Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)
The Leiterberg Trail is located high above the Leite district, one of the original farms in the history of Sölden. While it is still flowing, moderate and with a breathtaking panorama in the upper area, after a stop at the rustic Leiterberg Alm it is technically demanding. Here in the Bike Republic of Sölden, mountain bikers can look forward to a natural singletrack, peppered with roots and stones, at a distance of 4.6 km and a depth of 550 meters. The lower part with its tight curves and difficult passages will challenge even advanced bikers. Beginners enjoy their flow experience above the Alm and can bypass the difficult sections on the forest path.

The entry to Hochsölden is still quite moderate. This is also a so-called shared trail that you share with hikers. One should be accordingly considerate when traveling. As far as the Leiterberg Alm, the trail is easily manageable even for the less experienced. The wooden bridge over the Haimbach in the first third of the trail (before the section that is marked here) can be quite slippery, otherwise it's okay. Then it becomes more challenging. Less experienced mountain bikers can continue down the forest road that crosses the trail again and again. There are steep blocked passages with roots (more slippery than the stones) and steps as well as tight curves. Line choice is crucial here. Shortly before the end, stone slabs and wooden elements. You can tell from the trail that it was black until 2018. A total of 4.6 km and 550 meters in depth have to be overcome before, after a short ascent on asphalt, the flowing "Lettn Line" descends to the Giggijoch valley station.

After the Leiterbergalm and the short section on the forest road it becomes more challenging. Less experienced mountain bikers can continue down the forest road that crosses the trail again and again. This is followed by steep blocked passages with roots (more slippery than the stones) and steps as well as tight curves. Line choice is crucial here. Shortly before the end, rough stone slabs and wooden elements. You can tell from the trail that it was black until 2018. The trail here is more like S3 than S2. At the end, after a short ascent on asphalt, descend over the flowing "Lettn Line" to the Giggijoch valley station - repeat.

The trail descent is a landscaped mountain bike trail and very rewarding. However, Ötztal typically have a few challenging spots here. The last passage holds a trail crossing back to Sölden ready. The trail is lovely to ride flowig, but also has a few short uphill passages. Have fun!
