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!

The trailhead of the Fernar Trail High is located in the heart of a jaw-dropping scenery high up at 2.800 m. From the top to the bottom it requires all of your skills, powers and focus as the rocky route is very exposed. Via the Petznersee you face super-steep terrain, tight switchbacks and boulders blocking your way. At the end in Gaislach stop to recover before hitting the the Löple and then the Nene Trail. Chill on the BROATE LINE and then finish with the Schtecklar Trail.

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