• Steinwand-Runde (SW 22)

Duration 4h 15min
Length 28.66km
Max Altitude 1515m
Ascent 1060m
descent 1060m
Challenging and varied mountain bike tour on medium to steep gravel paths. In addition to the Steinwand Runde (SW 22) this tour includes an extension to the Sattelbauer.
From Flachau we cycle along the Enns cycle path to Altenmarkt, then take the road south towards Zauchensee. After crossing the Zauchbach stream, the tour leads us steadily uphill to the village of Pail. If you don't want to pedal the 650-meter climb in one go, you should take a break on the sun terrace and enjoy the magnificent view over the entire valley. We continue, first on asphalt, later on forest roads, which lead us over forest and meadow terrain to the highest point of the tour at a little more than 1500m. Here begins a relatively steep gravel descent through the Steinwand forest down into the Zauchbach valley. More or less along the brook the route now leads us out of the valley. Turning to the left, it goes off the Steinwand circuit up to the Sattelbauer and from there back towards Flachau. The tour ends in the center of Flachau.
