Our favourite MTB tours and MTB trails in Saalbach Hinterglemm

But where are the best places to bike? From trail to line, freeride to downhill, there are amazing feelings of elations waiting in the Home of Lässig. Our guides have collected their favourite MTB tours and MTB trails in Saalbach Hinterglemm for you:

  • Bergstadl Trail on the Schattberg: Many narrow, rooty parts make this 12-km-long tour a favourite among bike pros in Saalbach Hinterglemm. The high level of technical challenge with flowy parts, tricky switchbacks and aggressive rock passages demand everything from more experienced riders.
  • Wurzel Trail: The name “Root Trail” says it all as the elements of this very natural path have an exceedingly intense effect on biker and bike. Root fans absolutely must tackle these 3.4 km – medium difficulty, powerful for the riding technique.
  • Reiterkogel-Runde: The pump track on the valley station might offer tons of fun, but there’s actually a genuine endurance highlight waiting on and around the panoramic mountain. Starting in Hinterglemm you take the Glemmtal Cycle Path to the Rosswaldhütte before ascending to the Reiterkogel between Salzburg and Tyrol. The pretty steep descent to the Wetterkreuz calls for you to make a choice for the remainder of one of the most attractive MTB tours in Saalbach: more punishment on the forest paths or onto the easy-going Wetterkreuz Trail?
  • Talschluss Runde: 18.4 km in length, 480 m altitude difference and unique scenic beauty await biking enthusiasts in the valley end of Saalbach Hinterglemm. The route SH 05 partly leads across the Glemmtal Radweg and along the Stefflalm to the Lindlingalm. This is where a short, intense ascent toward the Ossmanalm begins with almost magical views of the Home of Lässig awaiting at the destination. There’s also a brief trail section that definitely needs to be experienced.
  • Hochalm Trail: Reach the start from the Reiterkogelbahn mountain station in no time (approx. 500 altitude metres). The downhill part simply just won’t quit and offers everything that makes biking fun. Stone and root parts, switchbacks, stream crossings and narrow banks lead across nearly 7 km of downhill entertainment throughout Saalbach Hinterglemm.
  • Schattberg-Runde: We return to the Schattberg one last time. A whopping 1,210 altitude metres await experienced mountain bikers. One of the neatest and most difficult tours of the region (27.8 km) really puts the endurance to the test riding from alp to alp, trail to trail. The round tour starting and ending at the Schattberg X-Press takes on the Glemmtal Cycle Path, the Schattberg and the X-Line or the Hacklberg Trail and Buchegg Trail, to name just a few. This endure ride is also perfect for summer guiding.
