Tour information

Tip for those who want to shorten the ascent to the Hohe Salve: take the Salvenbahn gondola lift to the middle section and save a good hour on the ascent.
In Hopfgarten, right before the Salvenbahn valley station, follow Lindrainweg and the sign „Rigi, Hohe Salve“ (MTB route 269). Pass the Sunnseithütte, the gondola middle station and the inn Gasthof Tenn until you get to a crossroads (Tennerwald) and continue to follow the road on the left which takes you after a short descent to a steep gravel path at a farmhouse. Now follow this partly demanding trail uphill. After a short downhill ride you get to another forest road (MTB route 268) at a fork which leads in a few hairpin bends uphill to the inn Gasthof Rigi (1.533m). A refreshment stop there.is definitely deserved. 
Condinue along a lovely mountain trail from Rigi in eastern direction until you are below the mountain station oft he Foisching lift. From here the route leads downhill to the Salvensee lake (MTB route 297) and via the Kälbersalvenalm to the reservoir Speichersee Hohe Salve. A short stop with a short tour around the lake is worth it for the beautiful view alone. The round tour continues down the Salvenberg and after some hairpin bends you will reach the Westendorf district of Moosen. From here you ride for a short distance on the B170 federal road in western direction and after a hundred metres left through the railway underpass and along the village road into the centre of Westendorf. Via Holzham (MTB route 206) and the Kitzbüheler Alpen golf course you follow the the sign to Windau and the Lendwirt inn. There, on the right, the Brixental cycle path will take you through the Windau valley back to your starting point in Hopfgarten.
