MTB tour over the Geiseljoch

The mountain bike route no. 403 starts in the Inntal valley and leads to the Tuxertal valley, passing over the 2,300 m high Geiseljoch in the Tux Alps.

This demanding tour over the Geiseljoch starts at Pill near Schwaz. Right at the start it leads uphill on the Weerberg road until Weerberg. The road continues towards south above the Weertal valley to the hamlet of Innerberg and to the Innerst tavern, where the MTB route no. 403 begins. A short section on a single trail connects to the forest road, which leads through the forest to the Weidener hut and the meadows of the Nafingalm.

The Weidener hut at 1,800 m a.s.l. is the only refreshment point on the central section of the trail and an ideal place for our lunch break. From there, there are 500 metres of altitude difference left to the Geiseljoch, the highest point of our mountain bike tour. On a section of approximately 1 kilometre at the Geiseljoch we have to push our bike. There the route no. 403 ends and the route no. 424 leads down into the Tuxer valley. The gravel road leads into an asphalted road on the last section.

At Vorderlandersbach the route no. 424 and the described tour ends. To get back to the starting point, you can descend from here along the Tuxer road to Mayrhofen and from there return to the Inn valley via cycle paths or with the Zillertal railway, which also carries bikes.
