The Flow Trail starts at the middle station for the Harschbichl cable car in St. Johann in Tirol. The access point is marked with an information board and is just beneath the lift station, close to the reservoir. The Harschbichl Trail starts at a leisurely pace, then winds initially in gentle bends and over obstacles through the forest, until reaching the forest road for the first time. Follow this short section, heading to the right and down the mountain, branching off later into the trail again.
The route picks up speed and after a short while crosses the forest road again. The trail flows through the forest again in lovely bends and over obstacles. Where this thins out, you come to the first Northshore bridge but you than just roll over this. Another, longer bridge proceeds from the forest out into open terrain. The route now really picks up speed, until the forest road is crossed again.
Once again the trail proceeds initially through light, then through denser forest. The next Northshore bridge can then really be tackled with plenty of speed and a little later you then pass the forest road again. The trail continues diagonally, to the left. A series of fast bends, obstacles and waves will magic up a smile on riders’ faces. The forest thins out and the terrain becomes more open. The gondola now hovers above and is always in your line of sight.
The trail is now more earthy, with the numerous bends and obstacles enabling a fast pace. Little jumps and hops tempt you to enjoy a bit of airtime. On a Northshore with railings, you cross a trench and continue right beneath the lift supports. There then follows a dense combination of bends, obstacles and Northshores. The forested area thins out and the pasture area increases. More and more dreamy views open up to the Wilder Kaiser and Leukental. Cycle past the Almhof on your left, and then follow the road for a short section. Beneath the bridge, the route then merges to become a trail again. What comes then is pure riding joy: The perfect single trail winds over these meadows, past the former summer toboggan run down into the valley.
At the end of the route there is a Skill Area where you can perfect your riding skills. Tip: Anyone who is looking for even more riding fun and does not shy away from an uphill, can pedal from the middle station up to the summit. In any case, the technically challenging descent is worth the effort.
