Saalfelden Leogang planned a mountain bike ride.
December 11, 2017
Today, you'll be heading up to the highest peak in the Salzburg Slate Alps — the farthest point you can go by mountain bike. Standing 2,117 meters (6945 feet), the Hundstein is the highest mountain in the area. You will start in Saalfelden and ride over the flat Ramseiden to Maria Alm. Here, you will follow the Urslau Ache course up to the Abergbahn valley station. Finally, you will head uphill, gaining around 1,250 metres (4101 feet) in elevation over the next 7 miles (12 kilometres). To catch your breath, there are great rest stops and panoramic views all the way to the top. Of course, the view from the summit of the Hundstein is stunning.
From here, you can enjoy the part you've been looking forward to all day – a fast downhill stretch leading to Thumersbach. When you arrive at the bottom, jump into the Zeller lake before rolling back to Saalfelden.
