Fernar Trail

High-Alpine Challenge

The BIKE REPUBLIC’s new alpine natural singletrack starts at the Tiefenbach glacier and carves its way down through super demanding terrain to Gaislach – it’s as spectacular as it is challenging!

You start at the top of the BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN: the Tiefenbach glacier (2.800 m). The deepblack track runs through super challenging high-alpine terrain down to Gaislach. Prepare yourself for steep passages, gnarly switchback & massive rocks. To recover and refuel you can stop at any of the hutsaround Gaislach. After passing by the wooden huts and Gasthof Sonneck, Gaislach Trail starts to the right and brings you to the lower section of Nene Trail – another technical black natural trail that winds down through the woods and brings you to the final Schteckler Trail and down to the Gaislachkogl station.

Safety advice

You ride at your own risk and responsibility.

In case of an accident, the rescue team can only operate with ropes due to the tough terrain!
