One of the classic mountain bike routes in the lower Ötztal valley, covering 30 km and challenging 1480 meters of altitude gain. Ambitious bikers in a very good physical shape can master this trail without difficulty.
The first stage leads to Hochoetz, a quite renowned route among mountain bikers due to its steeply winding asphalt road to Kühtai pass. This is also a part of the Ötztaler Cycle Marathon. At the height of Ochsengarten you turn into the strenuous gravel path in the direction of Bielefelder Hütte. The switch-backing ascent is really demanding and there is almost no time for taking a deep breathe. The hut at 2104 m above sea level is the highest point of the tour. Enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the Ötztal and lake Piburger See.
Before you start the speedy downhill you are strongly recommended to check your brakes again. The steep descent can be very challenging in some sections as you conquer no less than 1480 meters of elevation loss.
Wer rasante Abfahrten liebt, kann auch mit der Acherkogelbahn bis zum Panoramarestaurant Hochoetz fahren und von dort mit dem Bike zu beiden Seiten abfahren. Entlang der gesamten Strecke bleibt man auf gut befestigten Wegen. ACHTUNG: Ein Ausscheren auf schmale Trails oder Wanderwege ist hier nicht erlaubt.
