Details of the tour
Starting from the Trail Centre via the Uphill Flowtrail (uphill single trail, narrow mountain bike uphill stretches with intermittent roots and stones) we pass the bikelift exit station, the reservoir pond and the Almraushütte to continue on the Kampsteiner Schwaig Route until we reach the start of the Almrauschtrail (8a).
First we cruise down the Almrauschtrail (blue/easy) across roots and soft forest ground until we come back to the Almrauschhütte.
You can take a drinking break and fill up your water bottle at the fountain or get a cold dring which the former host of the Almrauschütte prepares for guests passing by. Just leave him some Euros in his box, it always - very positively - surprises him, that people honestly pay for the drinks he leaves in the fountain. If you are lucky you may meet him in person, he always has a joke or funny annectote on his lips and is never to busy for a quick chat.
Afterwards you start into the upper part of the Singletrails - which goes through corners over roots, rocks and steep bits downhill. If you find this too challenging you can also take the forest road downhill. After several corners - but a still a good distance above the pond - you will cross a forest road which leads to the Herrgottschnitzer Hütte to the right. Take it and pedal very easily some meters uphill to the Herrgottschnitzer Hütte (which is a wonderful place for a longer lunch break by the way...).
From there, our Herrgottschnitzer Trail rolls downhill through the woods until you come back to the Singletrail intersection.
Take the Singletrail downhill until you come back to the starting point.
Tip: At the bikelift exit you can also take the Flowtrail or if you have advance riding skills the Jumpline (Jumping skills required!) or the Downhill Line (black/difficult & for experts only).
