Switchbacks, exposed sections, rough and wet terrain – the black track travels from Gaislach Alm to Bodenegg (close to Zwieselstein) and is super demanding.

The Bodenegg Trail is a very challenging natural track at the outskirts of the BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN. It starts at Gaislach and leads down to Zwieselstein.
It begins with a quite flowy section across lush green alpine meadows and a fantastic view. However, you need to keep your eyes on the track! Once you dive into the forest it gets more and more technical with switchbacks, monstrous routes and rocks and sections where you have to get off the bike. 

The trail ends in Bodenegg on the Venter street. Follow it for a bit before you turn right into a forest road. You can also take the black Kuhtrainschlucht Trail to Zwieselstein.

 

Extremely good bikers can take the Bodenegg Trail after they managed to ride the Fernar Trail.

The Bodenegg Trail is also part of the Enduro Strecke Silbertal I.

Safety information

 

The black Bodenegg Trail is only suitable for very skilled riders as it is rough and exposed.

 

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.

Sölden - Bodenegg

Turn-by-turn directions

You start at Gaislach Alm. First you follow a quite flowing section across lush green Alpine meadows. Please stay on the marked route and don't cross the pastures! Later you traverse the forest trail, you even follow it for a bit. As soon as you reach the treeline, the trail becomes more difficult and demanding. In one section you must push your bike. The wet forest soil also features rocky blocks where a maximum of concentration is required.
