Factbox Downhill at the Elferbahnen

Our EinsEinser & ZweiZweier Trail are a magnet for downhill fans from all over Tyrol.

After the start at the mountain station, you can expect some drops and northshore elements as well as a wallride on the rather natural, over 4-kilometre-long Eins Einser Trail.

The ZweiZweier Trail runs partly underneath the gondola, but also in the forest. You can expect short natural sections, berms and smaller jumps. The ZweiZweier Trail is easier than the EinsEinser Trail because the ground is mostly smoothed. After 3.5 kilometres, the route ends in the EinsEinser Trail.

Charakter Descent via forest road - wide gravel path
Difficulty easy

Description: Directly at the exit from the Elfer panorama cable car, the descent begins via the forest road used as a toboggan run in winter. The gravel road is in a very well-maintained, smooth condition and therefore also very easy to ride with hardtails. This trail can of course also be ridden uphill. The uphill riding time is about 1.5 hours. This route is one of the official biker routes of the province of Tyrol (Route 574).

Continuation to Klamperbergalm 130 metres in altitude
Charakter small tour - wide forest road - suitable for beginners up to Autenalm
Difficulty easy (to Autenalm), medium (to Klamperbergalm)

Description: After a short descent on the wide forest road used as a toboggan run in winter, a forest road branches off at turn 7 to the Autenalm. This runs gently uphill to the Autenalm (riding time from hairpin bend 7: approx. 25 minutes). From the Autenalm, experienced bikers can continue to the Klamperbergalm (approx. 45 minutes). On the way back, you have the choice at turn 7 of the toboggan run: take the forest path back to the mountain station (340 metres in altitude - approx. 30-40 min), or down into the valley? This route is one of the official biking routes of the Tyrol (Route 574).

Duration mountain station to Issenangeralm 10-15 minutes
Starting point 1.790m (Elferbahn mountain station)
Descent to Issenangeralm 416 metres in altitude
Ascent Issenangeralm to Pinnisalm 185 metres in altitude (approx.. 25 minutes)
Ascent Pinnisalm to Karalm 214 metres in altitude (approx. 30 minutes)
Charakter forest road - wide gravel path
Difficulty easy to medium

Description: After getting off the gondola lift, you pass the sundial. Then the descent begins via the forest road, which is used as a toboggan run in winter, to the Issenangeralm. Here the trail branches off into the rear Pinnistal valley to the Pinnisalm, Karalm and Innsbruckerhütte. The ride to the Pinnisalm is gently uphill and pleasantly easy to ride, even for less experienced bikers. This route is also well suited for children who are confident in cycling and makes few demands on your physical condition. From the Pinnisalm to the Karalm, the wide gravel path is then somewhat steeper, but still easy to ride. Finally, you can descend the Pinnistal and get back to the valley station of the Elferbahn. A nice tour for the whole family! This route is one of the official biking routes of the province of Tyrol (Route 571).

Etappe 7 - Bikeschaukel Tirol

The Bikeschaukel Tirol also leads over the Elfer: from Fulpmes via Neustift to Steinach am Brenner. This medium-difficulty tour with a length of 41.30 km and 560 metres of altitude difference (without mountain railways) inspires with great trails and dream views of the peaks of the Stubai.

Important Information

Our request to all bikers:

Please respect the hikers, especially when descending the Pinnistal! Due to the murmur of the Pinnisbach, they will only hear the bikers at the last moment. Please ride past the hikers at walking speed, especially in this area!

Please do not ride on the steep tracks, but only on the forest roads!

Please always ride at half speed and with controlled speed, especially on bends, as obstacles (e.g. road damage, temporarily stored wood, oncoming traffic, grazing livestock, etc.) can be expected at any time and adapt your choice of route to your experience and riding ability!

There is lots going on in the Stubai

Our new Newsletter will keep you informed of all the news in the valley, even when you are not on holiday here.
