Then it's all set for the black Bodenegg Trail – a rough, super challenging ride down into the valley. The first bit leads through lush Alpine meadows (please don't leave the track). Once you reach the treeline, it becomes much trickier. There some sections where you have to push the bike. At the bottom, follow the Bodenegg Race Track to Gasthof Neue Post. Here you continue on the scenic, but also black Kühtrainschlucht Trail back to Sölden.
Please watch the hikers.
Safety informationBoth tracks are black and really challenging with tight, precipitous, and rocky sections.
The BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN is all about coming together and having the best time on your mountain bike – no matter what your skill level is. So always take care of each other, show respect and support – also towards nature and all other people out there in the mountains and the valley.
> Please only ride existing, signposted trails and never trespass open meadows.
