Freeriding fun on the top trails of Saalbach

Bike trails in Saalbach

In the seemingly endless supply of forest paths, nature trails, freeride trails, and pump tracks, it’s not always easy to find the best routes for yourself.

Therefore, here are the top 10 routes:


The Hacklberg Trail is THE trail that Saalbach has to offer! It is definitely the number 1 in the biker community and an absolute must for a biking holiday in Saalbach. The view is unbeatable. From the Schattberg, where the trail starts, one overlooks the whole Glemm valley. The six-kilometre route runs via the western summit to Hinterglemm. In combination with the subsequent Buchegg trail, the route combines finest single trails und 10 km at 1,000 metres above sea level. Simply a real playground for bikers.


The Bergstadl Trail at the Schattberg is a real treat for Enduro-riders and freeriders! This trail is the challenging alternative to the Hacklberg trail, and extends in many curves over roots and rocks, to the western summit. The many small, technical challenges in this charming nature path require full concentration and riding skill.


“Back to the roots”—this is the meaning of the Wurzel Trail. This natural trail extends over innumerable roots from the Kohlmais summit to the Wildenkarkogel and to the Schönleitenhütte. Root junkies will experience true moments of happiness on this nature trail. For beginners, however, this will be a somewhat bumpy affair, since the name of the trail is the programme.


The sophisticated X-Line is located at the steep hill of the Schattberg. It rewards you up there with its incredibly fabulous views of Saalbach. Not for nothing is the X-Line the longest freeride track in Europe. On 6 km and a difference in altitude of 1,025 m one encounters Northshore elements, a stream with a wooden bridge, rocky passages, tricky carpets of roots, spectacular road gaps, and much more. Here, you need a lot of power and high concentration. But you’ll love the track once you got to know it.


The Pro Line on the Reiterkogel has what it takes! On the track at the Reiterkogel, one is tempted to build up speed coming out of the curves and to try out one or more wheelies. Rocky sections follow narrow forest paths and many Northshore variations. Berms, doubles, tables, drops, technical route passages, and lots of smaller jumps make the Pro Line packed full of fun and promise a high fun factor.


The Blue Line is the little sister of the Pro Line. The perfect track for beginners. But faster bikers will also find pleasure in this playful route. Here beginners can get accustomed to the various freeriding terrains. Simple rock passages and root fields provide the necessary fun!


The beginner’s route at the Kohlmais is the ideal route to get a taste for freeriding. The numerous jumps and the route’s flow allows every biker to become a freerider. Generous berms, wide bends, small wood elements, and a gentle gradient make for a lot of fun. Even experienced bikers can perfect their curves on the Milka Line and work on their own style.


From the middle station of the Zwölferkogelbahn, the Z-Line powered by TREK snakes its way down to the valley. The trail takes you over countless berms, wallrides, and Northshore passages, as well as rollers, tables, and smaller jumps. There are always alternative ways around these features for those who might like to take things a little more gently. It is a simple to medium freeride route. A highlight is the second Wallride with an integrated action snapshot station. Your personal picture will be available at www.saalbach.com.


Enormous fun in the smallest space is available in the pumptracks. At the Wieserauberg, there are rollers, berms, and small tables on which beginners as well as advanced bikers can improve technique.


Perhaps the most natural trail in Saalbach. Here you are far away from the much frequented trails. After a 500-metre climb from the Reiterkogelbahn mountain station, an endless seeming descent through the colourful landscape of the Pinzgau grass mountains awaits you. With small berms, stream crossings, sharp turns, easier rooty and stony sections, everything is integrated on this trail, which makes a biker’s heart beat faster.

Lake of Charity
Lake of Charity
The 8th fun sports charity event will be held at the picturesque Gerstreitteich lake in Saalbach Hiterglemm, promising a great time with trendy sports, water fun and acoustic live acts. A spontaneous idea by three friends in 2011 has become increasingly popular in the last six years in the fun sports scene, creating a rippled effect in people’s willingness to offer their help for a good cause. The events have so far raised more than €200,000 for families and children in need in the Pinzgau region.  A lake of charity, ... but primarily it’s also a lake where you can enjoy lots of different kinds of sports – mega fun in a relaxed atmosphere guaranteed. Apart from the main competition for pros and amateurs, i.e. jumping with bikes, snowboards and freestyle ski over the massive water ramp into the crystal clear water, the roughly 5000 visitors get to do a lot of fun sports activities around the “Gerstreitteich” this weekend. The providers of the various fun sports and workshops are doing everything for free at the “Lake of Charity” and so everyone can enjoy water bombing, slacklining, wakeboarding, the slip´n´slide, archery and skating to their heart’s content. When dusk slowly falls over the breathtaking setting around the lake and the surrounding mountains are soaking up the last rays of daylight, enjoy the BBQ and cocktails provided by local restaurateurs while listening to local bands and other music artists playing on the banks of the lake.
