Wilder Kaiser Cycle Route

The Wilder Kaiser Mountain Bike Route connects Wörgl in the Inntal valley with the holiday villages on the sunny side of the Kaiser Mountains and leads until St. Johann in Tirol.

Starting in Wörgl we cycle through the Brixental valley towards southeast; the bike trail follows the Brixentaler Ache upstream. After the village of Bruckhäusl, where the Brixental Cycle Route (R21) branches off, the path ascends to the Söllandl through a landscape with meadows. After passing the village of Söll we continue north of the Lofer A-Road through the valley below Scheffau to Ellmau and Going am Wilden Kaiser.

Always with view on the majestic Kaiser Mountains we change to the northern side of the valley. Across meadows and woods, on forest paths we cycle down to St. Johann in Tirol, where the cycle route joins the Leukental and Kalkstein Cycle Paths. From spring to autumn you will find a beautiful landscape on this MTB route, and the villages along the route are also worth a visit. This bike tour shines with a high recreational factor and beautiful views on the surrounding alpine world.
