Dos and Don'ts
Rules guarantee the freedom of everyone and enable peaceful relations with the local community.
For your own safety, we ask you to abide by the following rules of conduct. These are not only important for us, but also for the environment. Only if we take care of the forest and meadows together, can we continue to provide well laid out, built and maintained trails
PROTECT YOUR HEAD
Protect your head with a helmet and check your equipment before starting every bike trail!
RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK
Caution – access and use of the Trail Park facilities are at your own risk!
The operators assume no supervisory duty or liability!
TRANSPORT OF CHILDREN
The transport of children in child seats (in front of or behind the rider) is expressly PROHIBITED.
Always watch your speed and make sure you can stop in the distance you can see to be clear. Be ready to break at any time.
When using the bike trails, everyone must be confident in their skills and knowledge.
TAKE CARE OF THE INFRASTRUCTURE
Short cuts and locked rear wheels damage the trail – do not ride off the marked trails.
Be considerate of other cyclists, hikers and wildlife, and do not leave any litter behind!
If you need medical help, call: 140 or 112
Please stick to our official Opening Hours
Choose your equipment according to your cycling abilities and the trail you wish to tackle. Here is a little guidance: BIKE MAGAZINE
2. Panorama Trails
Always cycle at a controlled speed and so you can stop in the distance you can see to be clear, especially at curves, as obstacles are to be expected at any time (e.g., stones, branches, temporarily stored wood, grazing cattle, cattle grids, tractors / forestry machinery, authorised vehicles)!
Be considerate of other mountain bikers, hikers and pedestrians, and only overtake at walking pace!
ASSESS YOUR ABILITIES
Be considerate of the level of difficulty of the route and assess your skills and experience as a biker carefully! If you are a beginner, do not try out any difficult trails and work on your basic skills on easy trails first.
PROTECT YOUR HEAD
Protect your head with a helmet and check your equipment before starting every bike trail (brakes, bell, light)!
ADHERE TO ROUTE CLOSURES & OPENING HOURS
Adhere to route closures and accept that this track is primarily for agricultural and forestry use! Close the gates! Please stick to the opening times! The Panorama Trails are accessible from 15 May until 1 November between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. (or in autumn 4:00 p.m. - when the sun goes down). Please respect the quiet times for the wildlife and the forest.
CONSIDERATION FOR NATURE AND WILDLIFE
Be considerate towards nature and wildlife, do not stray from the marked route, refrain from cycling off the open tracks and finish your bike ride before dusk. Do not leave any litter behind!
Ride smart. Progress. Stay safe.
Is it your first time on mountainbike trails, in a trail center or in our Wexl Trails trailpark?
Then take it easy first, ride some fun green (super easy) Trails first, before you take on more difficult sections.
If you feel very confident on blue (easy) trails and already feel like a pro jumping over small tables and riding berms a bit faster, then you are ready to take a look at red (intermediate) trails. Red trails will have steep, rooty, rocky sections. This will take some practise and a cautious approach.
Just follow our Trail Progression and work your way up from green trails to the more difficult ones.
Are you generally not yet 100% sure how to get going or tackle a difficult section, ask a coach and book a training to learn or revise the basic mountainbiking techniques.
The Ambulance App
The emergency APP for outdoor athletes in Lower Austria.
Safety always comes first for us at Wexl Trails. Therefore we really recommend the APP 144. In case of an emergency it must be easy and fast to call an ambulance.
With the app, you just need to presse the 144-Button in the App and automatically position, name and personal data are sent to the emergency call center to send an ambulance to your location.
