Tips

    This track is pretty challenging. I would only recommend it to well-trained drivers. But if you want to take this pass, I would always drive only from Elmens. In my opinion the track is far too drab and too cold on the part of Imst. So it's getting really cold. Would alone wrap up only for the departure of arm bands or a wind-tight jacket. I'm almost frozen on the downhill arms which is not necessarily of advantage when it comes downhill and you have to slow down quickly. If you want to attack the rise of Elmens side and do not pay attention to every gram of weight, it is best to build even lighter on his bike. There is a par relatively long tunnel which are pretty poorly lit. If there are still tons of cars and motorcyclists on the road, it can be quite uncomfortable. In addition, there are in Elmen a par drinking water well which one should visit before the rise still.

    Daniel, you are right.
    The mountains with all the brutal Karen and Muren is really impressive.
    Incidentally, there is just before the pass (coming from Ist) the Melkalpe Maldon. Idyllic location. But most of the time you will want to finish the rest of the climb before you stop and then hit the last 2.3km with 10-14% (max 23%) climb to the pass.

    Recommended from both sides, but the rise of Imst is more spectacular. The road is well developed and in good condition. Very popular with motorcyclists, but when driving around 10 am in the morning usually quiet.

    The westward climb of Elmen challenges you with 14.8km in length and almost 950 vertical meters. If the hard entry with up to 15% slope on the first kilometer, it goes on moderate moderate to moving slope to ground on. Here the road begins to wind up the mountain in serpentines and demands a lot from you with gradients of well over 10%.
    There is no opportunity for refreshment at the pass. The fast descent to Imst also has steep sections and should therefore be approached with caution.

    Class pass road, spectacular especially from the Imster side, here the route leads through very steep slopes high above the valley floor and over debris cone with the best views of the surrounding mountain peaks. The slope on the Imster side is moderate, without larger peaks and you can easily find a good kick. On the Elmener side it is much more unevenly to the point, in the middle is also a longer, almost flat piece, also a short intermediate gradient is there. In the downhill to Elmen it is on the last stretch into the Lechtal really fast.

    The Hahntennjoch is very worthwhile from both sides, but the driveway of Imst leads through even more spectacular scenery than that of Elmen. Also very popular with the motorized bicycle group, so rather early in the morning or late afternoon recommended.

    Once a year, the yoke is free of motorized traffic to protest the noise of many motorcycles.

    Demanding 12km ascent from Imst to the Hahntennjoch at 1894m. Continuous ascent with few flat passages. Unfortunately, due to the width of the road, a bit narrow in some places for cyclists and motorists.

    A challenge with a steady 10% gradient. A scenic tour towards Lechtal

    The pass road is very scenic, but you have to expect motorized fun drivers (convertibles, sports cars, vintage cars, motorcycles ...) on weekends and during the holiday periods, even during the week. The noise then spoils the cycling pleasure a little.
    Especially on the west side there are a few not too long tunnels so it is advisable to bring at least one taillight.

    Demanding but beautiful ascent from Elmen in the Lechtal to Bschlabs. First part with a gradient of up to 12% and then smaller to medium-sized tunnels on the way to Bschlabs at 1318m.
    The first part on the way to the Hahntennjoch (1894m)

    Quite even, never excessively steep ascent, relatively poor in shady sections, but with beautiful views and depths, especially in the upper third. Very popular with the Mopped Fraction, avoid on the weekend if possible.
