Start the tour in of Pill (Untergurgl). First you follow the Timmelsjoch pass road until you reach the toll station. This asphalt section is a perfect warm-up stage for the much more challenging gravel trails across wide open pasturelands. Past Angerer Alm mountain hut you continue towards Großes Kar saddle, crossing also the winding downhill trail coming down from Wurmkogel ski run.

But before you enjoy the exhilarating downhill ride you should not miss out on a visit to the scenic Top Mountain Star Restaurant, offering uninterrupted 360-degree views and a wonderful Panorama Bar overlooking the stunning Alps. In good weather you can admire the Dolomites in the south and the Ötztal Alps including Wildspitze peak in the north. Off you go!

This downhill trail offers plenty of speed and flow, requiring a good physical shape and excellent technical mountain biking skills on the first stage (1 km). Between Hochgurgl and Untergurgl the trail is still demanding and tricky, thus guaranteeing pure adrenaline! Return to Obergurgl via Pill by following Gurgler Achweg trail.
