The Eiskar Trail begins right next to the Preunegg
Jet mountain terminal and is excellent for beginners.
There are no obstacles or steps to negotiate and,
thanks to lots of flow, you have plenty of opportunities
to leave your brakes wide open. After 300 m on
a forest lane, your blue-rated ride continues on the
Schnepfenwald Trail.

Unlike the Eiskar Trail, the route of the
Schnepfenwald Trail is less curvy. On the other
hand, it does feature lots of exciting waves that fast
bikers will be able to jump over. At the end of the
trail, you will coast down the Reiteralmstrasse to the
Preunegg-Jet valley station.

An old hiking path was adapted to create this shared
trail beginning at the Hochalm. This variety-packed
trail with exposed roots runs through a hilly forest,
getting steeper and faster towards the end.

Once you reach the mountain terminal of the
Preunegg Jet, you will be faced with an 800 m-long,
challenging climb to the start of the Gassl Trail.
When you get there, you will be rewarded with
an imposing panoramic view of the Dachstein.
Traverses at the foot of craggy cliffs and tight turns
are sure to set pulses pounding. With so much
adrenaline pumping, if you ever need to catch your
breath this panoramic trail also offers a number of
very special photo points.

The Hochalm Trail captivates riders with its very
natural design. Elements such as rock slabs and
stones as well as natural curves make this line
ideal for beginning trail riders in search of a fresh
challenge after those blue-rated stages.

“Route 66“, named after the number of the old
hiking path, is a forest trail with lots of flow on soft,
needle-carpeted ground. After a short passage along
a forest lane, you will come to a narrow, newly
built stretch of trail with a series of tight berms.
