Tour information

Start this e-bike tour at the tourist information office in Hopfgarten. Drive through the railway underpass and follow the main road in the direction of Kitzbühel. At the railway underpass where the road is getting steeper turn right directly at the power station into the Windau Valley. Go along the river. Soon the valley is getting wider and the track leads you to the inn Lendwirt (690m). Change to the other side of the river after the inn and follow the asphalt road into the valley until it ends by a couple of houses after the saw-mill and continues as a fine gravel path. Now go on until the inn Jägerhäusl where you get back to a tarmacked road again. Now follow the well-marked route to the inn Steinberghaus from where a firest track leads on 3,8km to the mountain hut Gamskogelhütte. After a strengthening stop off there the descent leads back to the point of departure without any further climbs worth mentioning.
Free parking: in the centre of Hopfgarten – P2/ cycle parking lot or in the direction of Kelchsau at the Wasserfeld gravel parking lot.
