Upper Spin Trail Map

The Upper Spin Trail is a fantastic single trail, winding through the trees above Lake Reschen.

Description

Located on the Italian side of the 3-Länder Trails region, the trail is accessed from the top of the Schöneben lift station and traverses the mountain in a southerly direction.

Mostly downhill, there are sections that require a bit of pedalling, but nothing too challenging. A great trail for intermediate riders and for beginners wanting to take it to the next level.

To your left hand side the whole way down, you'll see the towering Tyrolean mountains and the bright sprakling blue of Lake Reschen.

Eventually you'll come out a junction giving you the choice to continue the fun with the Lower Spin Trail, or take a fire-road back down to the lake.
