Great MTB in Tirol

Five flowing singletrack trails for downhill daredevils.














From root carpets to high alpine trails, the following five Great Trails all have one thing in common: flow. This feeling of being in the moment and sweeping from one corner to the next can be experienced better than anywhere else on the Arzler Alm Trail, the Blindsee Trail, the Fleckalm Trail, the Leiterberg Trail and the Plamort Trail. These five outstanding sections of singletrack represent the best of Tirol's more than 115 trails.



Plamort Trail

With its cross-border flair and fantastic views of the Reschensee lake, the Plamort Trail is one of the classic trails in the 3 Countries Enduro Trails region. It is relatively long at 5.5 kilometres and leads through historical sights such as tank defences near the Italian border as well as lush meadows, thick forests and section of loose stones and rocks. The last part is characterised by many tight turns. The descent from the top at Bergkastel down to the Reschensee lake is divided into four sections, which are all rated either S1 or S2.

Blindsee Trail

Fabulous views and a dip in a mountain lake to finish off – the Blindsee Trail from the Grubigstein mountain to the Blindsee lake is without a doubt one of the main highlights in the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena. The trail itself is generally flowy with a few tough sections every now and then, including a gravel section. The trail is rated between S2 and S3 on the singletrail difficulty scale. Riders should have good bike-handling skills.

Leiterberg Trail

Add to travel guide High above Leite, one of the oldest settlements in Sölden, is the Leiterberg Trail. While the first section of the trail is flowy and relatively easy, including stunning panoramic views, the section section below the Leiterberg Alm hut is technically challenging. The 4.5km singletrack descends 550 vertical metres and forms part of the Bike Republic Sölden. It is characterised by root sections and some rocky passages. The lower section with its tight corners and technical parts will pose a challenge even for advanced riders. Beginner and intermediate riders can avoid the tricky lower section using a forest road.

Arzler Alm Trail

A classic on Innsbruck's doorstep; this man-made single trail offers a variety of playful terrain for most abilities and some optional gap jumps for those looking to get some air time.

Fleckalm Trail

Add to travel guide Mesuring 7.1 kilometres in length, the Fleckalm Trail is the longest singletrack in Tirol. It is located in the beautiful Kitzbühel Alps and winds its way down more than 1,100 vertical metres from top to bottom. This seemingly never-ending trail comprises root sections, large and small jumps, banked corners, berms, a few short climbs and plenty of fast sections. What more could you want from an enduro trail? It hosted the Mountainbike Enduro European Championships in 2015 and is rated S2/S3 on the international difficulty scale, depending on the section. Its length and technical elements mean that riders wishing to take on this challenge should have good fitness levels and bike-handling skills.
