A challenging tour climbing and descending the Hochsonnberg (2150m).
2 - 3
FATMAP difficulty grade
This is one of the few MTB trails in the Schmittenhöhe area, as most of the routes are exclusively for hikers.
It’s a great challenge for experienced bikers who want to test their technical skills and push their physical limits.
From Peisendorf, head to Walchen, where you begin to climb.
You head up the Hochsonnberg on a steep track through dense woodland.
As you near the top you will climb through a series of switchbacks before leaving the forest for a clearing and awesome views! Continue on past the Pinzgauer Hütte, climbing up in an arch shape before descending very steeply back through the forest.
Follow the dirt track all the way down, back to where you began in Peisendorf.
