3: WURZEL TRAIL
The Wurzel Trail leads through a much quieter environment on the Kohlmais than most of the trails in Saalbach Hinterglemm. It feels as if you were miles away from the freeride area near the cable cars. The path, which is completely natural, connects the Kohlmaisgipfel peak with the Wildenkarkogel mountain and runs without a noticeable incline, but is full of roots and minor ups and downs along the mountain slopes. True to the motto “back to the roots”, this route was adapted from an old path and not specifically designed for bikers. East of the Kohlmaisgipfel peak and directly behind the 6-seater Panorama chair lift, the Wurzel Trail leads for miles and miles across forest and hiking trails with many tricky key points to Schönleitenhütte and Leogang. Root junkies will experience true moments of happiness here. For beginners, however, it may be a bit bumpy here and there.
