Tour information

Warmup down the Windau valley
We start with a relaxed ride down the valley towards Westendorf on a small, but very fine, asphalt road. To warm up, so to speak. You can once again enjoy the very remote and natural flair of the Windau Valley here. 
If the breakfast at Gasthof Steinberg wasn't enough, you'll still find plenty of options in Westendorf to fill up your supplies and bellies. 😜

From Westendorf to Brixen im Thale
From Westendorf we follow the bike path towards Brixen im Thale. We follow the Brixentaler Ache almost to its source and turn right in Winkl, heading south, to follow a beautiful valley uphill along the Brixenbach. Over a small wooden bridge we cross the still very small Brixentaler Ache and can wave it goodbye once again. 

Up to the Wiegalm
The forest road winds quickly and somewhat more steeply uphill and there it is: the Wiegalm. 
At the Wiegalm Jausenstation alpine hut we can enjoy regional specialties and fortify ourselves before our big challenge of the day. Attention: In case of bad weather the alp is closed, so take some food with you to be on the safe side!

Natural Flow at the Wiegalmtrail
A few meters downhill on the forest road, there is already the turnoff to our challenge of the day. The Wiegalm Trail puts our riding skills to the test. As a red trail, it is classified as a medium-difficulty trail. So you should have some experience here and have ridden a single trail before.
The beginning is quite steep and a little washed out. We cross a creek bed. Here begins a fantastic piece of flow trail. At the beginning through the forest, then over open alpine wasteland. With wonderful views and a fast and fun passage we rush downhill. Then we get back into the forest and it gets steeper again.
We have to lift our bikes over a cattle gate, then we descend steeply through the forest. At the bottom we come back to the forest road. 

Alternative descend over the forest road
You are uncomfortable with the thought of technical single trails? You can instead of turning right at the top towards the Wiegalmtrail, follow the forest road. You just have to turn right before the Leitner Alm and follow the switchbacks into the valley, there you will meet up with the Wiegalmtrail again.
Once down in the valley, we roll along the Aschauer Ache towards Kirchberg in Tirol. A beautiful path brings us almost to the center, before we briefly turn onto the road.
In Kirchdorf we can get another refreshment at one of the many restaurants or fill up our supplies, then we follow the bike path towards Schwarzsee lake. 

Via Schwarzensee lake to Oberndorf
Behind Schwarzsee lake, we turn left, heading north, and follow bike path 280 to Oberndorf in Tirol.
