1: HACKLBERG TRAIL
It is true what people say about the legendary Hacklberg Trail: a unique view, passages where you can confidently release the brake handle; perfect descents that make pedalling unnecessary, countless waves and jumps that provide for a lot of airtime and encourage riders to freestyle. The Hacklberg Trail starts on Schattberg mountain in Saalbach and leads through the Westgipfel peak to Hinterglemm. It is one of the most beautiful single tracks in the valley and has earned an excellent reputation beyond the borders of Austria. With a length of six kilometres, this panorama run is a true playground for mountain bikers. Together with the subsequent Buchegg Trail, this route combines the finest single tracks and ten kilometres of downhill fun at an altitude difference of 1,000 metres. Those who enjoy being a part of the community should ride the trail in the late afternoon. At that time of the day, the terraces of the mountain pastures along the trail are full of mountain bikers.
