If you like technical singletrack trails easily accessible by a gondola, this is definitely the area you need to visit near Innsbruck! Never change a running system, they say - this trail was the first one built in Neustift and, even if the years are running by - the trail is so good that it is always the same! From the top of Elferbahn, the trail starts just next to the slope used by paragliders for taking off, and it goes all the way down to the valley, always facing north.
The trail is maintained but not too clean - this adds that perfect spice, which is often missing in the flow trails around the area.
Roots, rock gardens, and rocks rolls are the main course here, with quite a few berms and some side hits.
The gradient of the trail is just perfect: never too steep, and it doesn’t require you to be on the brakes all the time, letting you find the perfect flow to play around on the natural features.
Some narrow sections in the forest might be really slippery when wet, especially in the midsection, which doesn’t get much sun after a rainfall.
Be especially carefulwhere the trail gets a bit more exposed. In the lower part, where the trail merges with the other trail in this area, you'll find two wooden drops of different sizes, which lead straight into a wallride.
Then you'll stop in front of the perfect hut for a few beers during the last lap! Don't go overboard, though: you still need to be able to focus for the very last section of the trail, back to the car.
