The route

The exclusive Austrian edition of the Stoneman is designed in 3 stages, leading from Flachau to Wagrain-Kleinarl to the Penkkopf and the Baierwaldstraße back to Flachau. Via Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, the route goes up to the 1768 m high Rossbrand near Radstadt. At the top is a magnificent 360° panoramic view of 150 striking Alpine peaks such as Dachstein, Bischofsmütze and the Hohe Tauern range with the Großglockner. Winding south at 1860 m, the Stoneman Taurista passes through picturesque alpine landscape around Oberhüttensee lake, nestled between the rugged mountains of the Schladminger and Radstädter Tauern ranges. The Stoneman Taurista mountain bike challenge also passes through the winter sports paradise of Obertauern up the 2110 m Königsanstieg ("King's Ascent") and back to Flachau.

Enjoying the journey

Every route has its own history and everyone who travels it makes their own unique memories.

For me, the Stoneman Taurista was a real test of endurance – but the memories of the striking countryside and the pride I still feel today remain, because I know that I really managed to complete the silver Stoneman Taurista.
