A somewhat more challenging route over lush meadows and wooden footbridges with a short section for pushing. Enjoy the view on the Greitspitz and a stop at the Paznauner Taja is highly recommended.
Distance 11.3 km
The start is on the Idalp and leads across the alpine pastures down to Höllboden. A counter-climb leads towards Sassgalunkopf, where you push the bike for a bit. The view of Greitspitz to the south and Rauher Kopf to the north is impressive. Afterwards, the challenging single trail begins over lush meadows and some wooden bridges, which promote concentration and riding pleasure. At point 2155, you either descend steeply via the single trail to the Paznauner Taja or the alternative is via the easy road. The descent from the Paznauner Taja to the road is technically demanding and from there, via the middle station, you can take the Silvrettabahn to Ischgl.
Stop at the Paznaun Taja
