MTB tour Kirchberg - Hahnenkamm - Kitzbühel

This mountain bike tour leads through the Spertental valley and along the Aschauer Höhenweg up to the panoramic mountain Hahnenkamm and via Kitzbühel back to the starting point.

Starting in Kirchberg in Tirol, we follow the signpost of the MTB route no. 204 (Unterer Grund). Along the Aschauer Ache river the asphalt and gravel path leads to Aschau and further through the Untere-Grund valley, past the Kloo-Alm, to the junction at the Rakstattalm (1,290 m). Up to here we have managed 460 metres in altitude on a 12.5 km stretch, the gentle ascent had become a little steeper from Aschau on.

Now we change the driving direction and turn onto the Aschauer Höhenweg path (no. 205), it is an almost flat (with a few short climbs) 6.5 km long section to the junction before the Hieslegg-Alm (1,450 m) towards north. There we turn into the forest path Usterkar, part of the Pengelstein Route (No. 285). Now the trail climbs steeply (12% gradient) up to the huts of the Gauxeralm and on to the mountain station of the Hieslegg Cable Car at 1,900 m a.s.l.

After a total of almost 4 hours we have now reached the final altitude and on an almost flat section we reach the Restaurant Pengelstein, where we take a break. Via the MTB route No. 232 we continue to the Jufenkamm, Ehrenbachhöhe and Hahnenkamm-Stüberl, where the beautiful long downhill ride to Kitzbühel starts. Arrived in the town, we cycle back to Kirchberg on the cycle path. For this tour (without electric motor support) about 5 to 6 hours plus breaks have to be estimated. In order to enjoy it to the fullest, it should be planned as an all-day tour. We have chosen Kirchberg as the starting point of this round tour, Kitzbühel is equally suitable.
