The Bachler Trail Map

With wide bends, nice flowy sections and nothing too technical, The Bachler is a very enjoyable ride even for less experienced riders.

Description

To reach the start you need to be prepared to climb up a short way with your bike from the Langwied lift station on the Kitzsteinhorn, or via the Maiskogel/ Astenweg.

The trail has a 600 metre vertical drop over roughly 5 kilometres, finishing up next to the beautiful Klammsee on the Kaprun valley floor. From the lake you can follow a road along the valley to the Kitzsteinhorn Gletscherjet station.
