The Hacklberg Trail from the Schattberg in Saalbach over the Westgipfel summit to Hinterglemm is one of the most beautiful singletrails in the valley, and is known throughout Austria as the epitome of a flowing trail. But work comes before pleasure here, in the form of a demanding climb that has to be overcome before being able to enjoy the extra-long descent.

This natural, flowing trail begins right beside the top station of the Westgipfel lift, and heads off down towards the Hacklberg Alm along a grassy ridge. It offers plenty of opportunity for speed, as well as having some berms, smaller jumps, and numerous rollers providing you with plenty of opportunity for airtime. Thanks to its gentle gradient, beginners can enjoy it as well as experts.

       Right now it’s pretty wet up top, sometimes snow. A lot of sniper rocks after small hits
