Popular hiking path!!
First switchbacks are a bit difficult, after that the path goes along the Madritschbach as a multiple singletrack over some rocks. Some rocks require a good eye for the best line when riding fast.
Mostly flat with some steep grades to the end, some parts very eroded and gravelly.

As the trail starts from 3050m, snow may cover the trail until late June and from end of August!

Access Info

Gondola from Sulden, then 600meters elevation up to 3050 a strong walk.

       I would rate the difficulty between blue and black. Rather black as you are in high-alpine terrain with various other risks (weather, air-pressure, snow, bad treatment/supply in case of falling, lots of rocks) during your ride.

      Mostly, there are easy and super-flowy blue sections, but the first few metres at the start (and also in the middle of the trail at a few sections) are definitely black.

      At the tech-sections there are a few switch-backs and also lots of rocks (but tech-sections are only 5-10% of the track). In the flow-sections you can go quite fast, but please note that this is also a common hiking path! Hikers have priority!

      However this tour/trail is a MUST DO for every mountain-biker with epic landscapes and sceneries all your way down to Enzianhütte/Zufrittsee/Martelltal.

      Access via Sulden or bike/hike from Martelltal on the same way as you ride down.
