Mountain Bike Safari-Stage 12: Steinberg am Rofan – Alpbach
The route leads along the Steinberg and Brandenberg Streams to Kramsach and via Brixlegg to Reith up the Alpbach Valley and past the Reitherkogelbahn mountain gondola to the Kerschbaum Saddle. The final descent of the day leads down to the village of Alpbach.
Trail description: from Steinberg am Rofan, riders take the forest road via Hinterberg to Pinegg. The short descent to Pinegg is followed by a fairly long climb on a tarmacked road to Aschau, which in turn is followed by a slightly bumpy downhill section to Kramsach. After passing Kramsach, riders switch to the other side of the Inn River, head towards Brixlegg and climb up along hairpin bends up to Reith. The eitherkogelbahn mountain gondola takes riders to the top, reaching an altitude of almost 1,200 metres. From the top station, riders continue uphill for a short while before descending to the Kerschbaum Saddle overlooking the Ziller Valley. This is where riders switch to a different side of the mountain and climb for around 400 vertical metres to the Hochlindalm hut. From there, they ride down to Kolber and then into the valley to reach Alpbach, the finishing point of this stage.
