Mountain biking

Framed by the Pinzgau grassy mountains and surrounded by the Kitzbühel Alps, Saalbach Hinterglemm has been considered the leading mountain bike region in Austria for many years. An enormous network of trails, which includes over 400 km of bike routes of all levels of difficulty, leaves nothing to be desired. The mountains can be easily explored on marked MTB trails and the neighbouring Leogang region was also included in the BIG-5 Bike Challenge. Modern cable cars, which transport bikers up the mountain free of charge thanks to the JOKER CARD, complete the offer for adventure seekers.

With an excellent infrastructure and a huge range of trails, Saalbach Hinterglemm offers a paradise for all mountain bike enthusiasts. If you are looking for natural mountain paths, you will find them as well as a large selection of tricky single trails and shaped freeride routes for every skill level. To start the day more calmly, there are beautiful mountain bike tours for leisure cyclists and marathon fans away from the centers and cable car facilities. In combination with the neighboring Leogang Bike Park, a bike El Dorado opens up that you probably won't find anywhere else in the Austrian Alps.

At the end of the day, it's not just the ascent of all five mountains that counts, but also the additional meters in altitude climbed.


Top Trails in Saalbach Hinterglemm

With numerous freeride routes, epic natural trails, fun pump tracks and endless forest paths, Saalbach Hinterglemm offers the right terrain for every mountain biker to let off steam to their heart's content for days. New adventures are waiting to be explored and discovered around every corner. With so many options, it is not always easy to find the right route for you. As a guide, we offer a list of the most popular trails in Saalbach Hinterglemm here:


It's true what the community has to say about the legendary Hacklberg Trail: a unique view, Passages where you can safely do without pulling the brake lever, perfect gradient that eliminates the need for strenuous pedaling, countless waves and jumps that provide lots of air time and also invite you to style. The Hacklberg Trail starts at the Schattberg in Saalbach and leads over the western summit to Hinterglemm. It is one of the most beautiful single trails in the valley and has long been known beyond the borders. With a length of six kilometers, this panoramic run is a real playground for mountain bikers. In combination with the adjoining Buchegg Trail, this route combines the finest single trails and ten kilometers of downhill fun over 1,000 meters in altitude.


The Bergstadl Trail on the Schattberg is a treat for enduro riders and freeriders! In addition to the Hacklberg Trail, which begins further up, it is one of the absolute flagships of Saalbach Hinterglemm. The gondola takes you up to 2,000 meters above sea level to the Schattberg X-press mountain station. This is followed by a short sliding passage over to the west summit. The Bergstadl Trail branches off from the Hacklberg Trail after about 300 meters and winds in many curves through a postcard idyll directly to the Bergstadl. It is the more demanding alternative to the Hacklberg Trail and offers numerous technical refinements. This trail has the full program: fantastic scenery and breathtaking views, roots, rocks, hairpin bends - but also longer passages that are easy to ride. The many small, technical challenges of this attractive nature trail require full concentration and driving skills.


The demanding X-Line powered by CONTI is located on the northern flank of the Schattberg, which not only guarantees steep terrain but also a great view of Saalbach. With a length of over six kilometers and an altitude difference of 1,025 m, the X-Line winds its way from the mountain station to the valley station of the Schattberg, making it one of the longest freeride routes in Europe. From full-blooded enduro riders to downhill cracks, everyone gets their money's worth here. The absolute highlights include northshore elements, a stream with a wooden bridge - which can also be jumped over, rocky passages, tricky root carpets, a spectacular road gap and much more. The X-Line more than lives up to its reputation as an intense, technical and demanding route. After an initial familiarization ride, you quickly get to grips with the special rhythm of this extremely popular route.


The Pro Line on the Reiterkogel has it all! It's not for nothing that it is regularly the scene of action-packed downhill races - such as the GlemmRide Bike Festival or the World Games of Mountain Biking. The Pro Line is the perfect route for extensive training sessions. Be it to build up speed or simply to improve your own style. The route tempts you to accelerate out of the corners, try out a new choice of line and dare to do the odd wheelie. The Pro Line is initially characterized by narrow forest paths, followed by rocky parts and numerous northshore variants. Berms, doubles, tables, drop batteries, technical root passages and many smaller jumps make the route extremely action-packed and promise a high level of fun.


The Blue Line on the Reiterkogel promises a lot of action, and not just for beginners. Even faster bikers enjoy the playful route and the flat gradient, which is why the brakes can safely remain untouched. The Blue Line offers simple steep curves, small jumps, flat northshore elements and some tables that beginners can easily roll over. First experiences with the different types of routes can be had on simple rocky passages and root fields. Many beginners try their hand at freeriding here. Despite being classified as an “easy freeride,” the Blue Line is a freeride descent that is a lot of fun. Some passages also require a certain level of bike control.


The Monti Trail, from the middle station of the Kohlmaisbahn down to Saalbach, is a beginner-friendly freeride route for young and old. With numerous jumps and flowing routes, it is ideal for one or two warm-up laps before you dare to tackle bigger challenges, such as the Pro Line or X-Line. With generous berms, wide curves, small wooden elements and a slight gradient, it also enables every beginner to start freeriding with ease and a lot of fun. Here you can build up the necessary skills and get used to your mountain bike in order to then venture into more challenging terrain. The Monti Trail Line is also attractive for advanced bikers: Here, experienced bikers can work perfectly on their cornering technique and their own style. The perfect whip or scrub is within reach!
