MTB-Trail World Cup circuit K1

One starts at the Kaprun town hall and then one follows the signsalong the farm and forest road to the Glocknerblick (view to theGroßglockner) mountain guest house. As the name suggests, onehas a magnificent view of Austria’s highest mountain from here.The technically good riders then follow the over the Astenwegpath and Bachler trail to the Schneckenreith guest house. Ridersare fully technically challenged on this trail and after passingthrough the forest one can pause now and then to enjoy thebeautiful view over the Klamm lake.Riders wishing to take a more gentle run, which is not as difficulttechnically, take the farm road from ‘Heli’s Hütte’ down over theMaiskogel to Kaprun.Both routes come together and the beginning of the cross-countrycircuit. A couple of short, very steep climbs follow, on the legendaryKaprun cross-country circuit, before reaching the Kapruncastle where one turns off to finish the tour gently along the banksof the Salzach river.
