Challenging mountain bike tour in Flachauwinkl with great panorama and long descent.
Along the Ennsradweg we start into the valley in the direction of Flachauwinkl. After a little more than 5km we leave the Enns and a long ascent of more than 800 metres in altitude begins. From here on gravel forest paths we first go through the forest, later along ski slopes of the Shuttleberg ski area in a constant ascent uphill. More and more we come to panoramic alpine meadows with the Frauenalm (refreshment stop) and have reached the highest point of the tour at about 1850m. After a short descent, you can either take a break at the Schüttalm (refreshment stop) or at the idyllically situated Weissenhofalm (refreshment stop). A very long descent follows in varying gradients, past the Flying Mozart middle station and the Red 8-seater cable car, before you reach the bottom of the valley and ride flat on cycle paths back to Flachau.
