Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)
Saalfelden Leogang planned a mountain bike ride.
December 22, 2016
From the Leoganger cable cars valley station, follow the cycle path which leads gently uphill towards Hochfilzen. From there, you will continue to the Gasthof Eiserne Hand and over the Burgeralm to the Spielberghaus. The descent follows along a forest path to Saalbach. Enduro lovers can also follow the "Höllen Trail" down to the bottom.
UP IT GOES WITH THE GONDOLA! With the help of the Kohlmais cable car (Saalfelden Leogang Card required), you can easily reach the mountain station where you can then join the Big 5 Trail to the Wildenkar hut. If you're super sporty and can't get enough of climbing, you can of course also cycle instead, as you can see from the indicated route.
To return to Leogang, you will pass the Schönleitenhütte and follow the Asitz Trail. You can then follow the newly built Steinberg Line by FOX all the way down into the valley. Alternatively, you can head back via the forest road.
TIP: Elbow and knee protectors are recommended for the descent from Asitz!
