The Ischnig Trail is a moderate natural single trail, situated south of the small inn called "Ischnig" near lake Faaker See.

Access Info

The Ischnig Trail (T22) is a natural single trail with intermediate difficulty, just above the small inn called "Ischnig". In the upper third the trail is a natural singletrack with some stones and roots, before it turns into a forest road. This trail can be combined very well with the Kopein Trail, Samonigg Trail or the Flowgartner Trail. At the end of the exit we advise you to cycle back to the starting point for a traditional snack at the "Ischnig".

       It is described as "single trail", but the whole track is a mixture of a crappy fire-road and wide double-tracks (now, december 2019). Trail-signs only at the trail-entry, then you have to look up to the map/gps/trailforks at all crossings.

      thanks for your feedback. If you read the whole description, then you find that just the first part is a single trail and the rest is more or less a forest road ;-)

      Greetings your lake.bike team

      would still appreciate it, if the trail type would be changed accordingly (mixed), as many people use the summary as they are not fluent in the English language.
      Still a nice spot to get water!

       Yes, but in the general text it is described as "The Ischnig Trail is a moderate natural single trail". Only a short info in access-text outlines that two-thirds of the track are fire-road ...

      When i read the general info where it is described as "single-trail", and i planed the tour or know the acces, i do not read and verify the whole track-text exactly (f.e.: some regions write lots of useless marketing-buzzwords in their textes – also on trailforks...) if there is anywhere a hidden hint which counters the general info like you did in the access-info (" [...] before it turns into a forest road.").

      But in general i respect and favour your (good) work about bringing some mountainbike-possibilities into the region. Especially in the light of the crappy legal/forbidden mtb-situation in Austria.

      It is just for your information about becoming better for a serious mtb-region :-)

       I respect the efford of building the area as a mtb destination, but this track doesn't deserve to be called a mtb trail.

      Short upper part singletrack is nice, but the rest of "the trail" is a loose rocks doubletrack. A bit dangerous too. In rare cases would recommend a doubletrack being marked as a trail. And this is not the one.

      Did not enjoyed it at all. Not worth the climb.

       Agree with other guys here, how the f*** this is called a trail and promoted in marketing materials and trail maps? It takes quite some effort to climb on the start of the trail where you have to cross a river and then after a few meters on a narrow path the path changes to a classic forrest road and you just loose all the climbed meters in a few minutes of a boring descent.

      Seems as a classic issue here in Austria - big marketing and very diverse quality of riding where only 1 out of 3-5 trails is really cool, the rest is usually a disappointment.
