What you get on this round? 25 km, 1.060 m of up- and downhill, jaw-dropping views and huts, huts, huts!  Start in the center of Sölden and pedal up via Außerwald and Innerwald to the glacier road. After about 700 meters, you turn into a forest road heading for Gaislach/Silbertal. It's a lovely, quiet uphill till you get to three huts: Sonneck, Silbertal and Gaislachlam. The final climb is short, but supersteep and will eventually bring you to the mid-station Gaislachkogl. Pass by and then turn left into the beautiful Bartiges Bödele Trail which flows over to the Rettenbach valley. Pedal up the road to Rettenbachalm, the entry of the Rettenbachalm Trail leading to Höchsölden and the Sonnblick, just another culinary stop. The final Leiterberg Trail travels through the forest on a quite challgenging, tricky route. Next stop: Leiterbergalm before diving back into the forest and finally via the supersmooth LETTN LINE back to Sölden.

 

Please yield to hikers!
