Freeride Trails

12 kilometres and 1.500 altitude metres downhill on the mountain bike freeride trails

The three freeride trails at the Kitzsteinhorn offer pure variety on a total of 1.500 altitude metres and 12 kilometres:

Starting at the Alpincenter in 2.450 m, you are still in high alpine environment on the Geißstein Trail but you will be surrounded by the green alpine pastures of this vegetation zone from the Langwiedboden onward. A section with many roots awaits a bit further down as soon as you reach at the timber line at the Wüstlau Trail where technically challenging passages must be tackled. Back in the valley, the tour continues leisurely to the valley station because freeriders and their bikes get of course uphill quickly and in comfort by cable car. The three freeride trails at the Kitzsteinhorn are perfect for enduro bikers.

Freeride trails open from approximately mid-June to mid-September.

F1 Bachler Trail open
F2 Wüstlau Trail open
F3 Geißstein Trail open
F4 Maiskogel Trail open
Route description

Freeride trails

Freeride mountain bikers are treated to the experience they’ve been hoping for on this variety-packed trail spanning 600 vertical meters and a total distance of 5.2 kilometers. You can reach the starting point of the trail either by means of the Langwied lift station on the Kitzsteinhorn (please note: involves a short climb) or via the Maiskogel/Astenweg. The Bachler Trail ends at picturesque Klammsee lake. From there, a road brings you back to the valley station of the Kitzsteinhorn Gletscherjet as well as in the direction of Kaprun to the valley station of the MK Maiskogelbahn.

Level: Difficult / challenging

The Wüstlau Trail takes you from the Langwied (1,976 m) all the way down to the valley, dropping a fabulous 1,070 vertical meters with a total distance of 7.7 kilometers. Freeriders need lots of stamina and skill for this ride, since the extra-long trail leads across alpine pastures as well as forest stretches with loose stones and exposed roots, while you will also have to tackle the occasional sharp hairpin turn in the steep section as well.

Level: Difficult / challenging

You will have to negotiate 476 vertical meters on this over 3 kilometers-long high-alpine trail starting at the Alpincenter at 2,450 m. Firstly, you will ride at speed over the pistes and small jumps. This is followed by rocky, technically challenging passages as far as the Langwied at 1,976 m. The Geißstein Trail ends here, though with two different variants feeding into the Wüstlau Trail.

Level: Difficult / challenging

Trail Maiskogel

NEW from Summer 2021: The newly built F4 Maiskogel Trail is definitely the highlight for our local mountain in Kaprun, representing the perfect addition for all downhill riders. The trail winds along for 4.6 km from the Maiskogel mountain station at 1,570 m through a series of extended and tighter banked curves, waves and smallish jumps, ending at the mid-station of the MK Maiskogelbahn. 

Level: Easy
