Hochalm Trail Details

To get to the Hochalm Trail, the best way is to cover the first 500 vertical metres by taking the Reiterkogel lift. The route then goes past the Rosswaldhütte, and then up towards the Reichkendlkopf and to the top station of the Spieleck drag lift. Once you have managed this climb, you are rewarded by a sheer endless ride down through the wonderful scenery of the grassy mountains of Pinzgau, along a route that has a bit of everything that trailbikers love: steep passages, stream crossings, sharp turns, rooty and stony sections. The finish is the valley, from where you can ride back leisurely to Saalbach Hinterglemm.

Important: Please ride controlled and with reduced speed on forest roads. Always respect hikers and other bikers. A friendly "hello" and "thank you" makes a good coexistence!

 The Climb to the top ist absolutely not worth it! Only the beginning of the trail is actually a trail. 4/5 is just a steep forest road.

 First, as said: The trail actually ends and the sharp right turn at about 1640 m height.
Well, I had ridden the trail last year in June, and today. And I'm a bit disappointed. The upper part of about 1 km did not change and is a great natural ride. Lots of stones force you to choose your line - but this does not limit your speed Smile Real fun! But then - what did they do? Everything is filled up with stony gravel! No more dirt at all. There were difficult steps, grooves and ruts last year. Nothing like this anymore. A merely funny park-like line of hard stony gravel. So sad.
If you are a technical rider I'd recommend riding the hiking trail 3 instead - in the early morning or evening, as it is forbidden! Quite challenging! Wink

 Yes this trail is not worth climbing. Last year the changes have destroyed the trail. It is now a "flow trail" for e-bikers...
