From the Freizeit Arena you pedal along the main road to the BP gas station, where you turn right up the road to Außerwald and Innerwald and the glacier road. Continue on the road to Hochsölden. Here, you should stop at the restaurant Sonnblick to enjoy the great food and the great view. It's located right at the entry of the GAHE LINE. This line is a flow show that lasts for 7.4 km (!!!). At its end you can thread into the LETTN LINE which takes you straight down to the Gaislachkogl station in the valley.

Safety information

 

The GAHE LINE is a red line – and it's long. There are many rest places to stop in-between. The LETTN LINE is an easy ride, but the many wooden sections can be slippery!

 

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.

-> Avoid skidding, don’t cut switchbacks & leave no trace.

-> Stay alert, never scare animals and always close the pasture gates. In the REPUBLIC there’s always a chance of cattle on the trails and lines. Ride carefully and give them enough room.
