MTB tour on the Sendersweg

The path throughthe Senderstal valley connects the village of Grinzenswith the Kemater mountain pasture and the Pichler hut, which is situated at the foot of the Kalkkögel mountains in the Stubai Alps: Our MTB tip leads from the Inntal valley up to an altitude of 2,000 m.

Our tour in the Stubai Alps starts at Kematen in Tirol, in the Inntal valley, west of Innsbruck. After passing through the village, at the crossroads we turn left on the Axamer road and cycle uphill. After the hamlet of Zifres we go on the Gruben road, which leads through the hamlet of Bachl to Grinzens (950 m). At the bus stop „Kohlstatt“ we turn into the Fernereben trail. Here starts the trail to the Kemater mountain pasture, marked as MTB route no. 555. Soon after the asphalted road changes into gravel and leads deeper and deeper into the valley, along the banks of the Sendersbach stream (road subject to toll for cars).

Surrounded by the forest we continue to cycle through the Senderstal, pass two chapels and steeper sections alternate with more gentle ones. At 1,450 m we see the first clearing at the junction to the Salfeins alpine pasture. The next section gets steep again and we arrive at the Kemater hut (1,670 m). This is the end point of MTB route no. 555. Anyhow, there is the possibility to continue towards the Adolf Pichler hut (1,980 m). This short stretch is really steep and you have to push your bike. In the final section, the gradient is considerably reduced by serpentines. The magnificent view of the Kalkkögel mountains, which can particularly be appreciated in the afternoon light, is for sure the highlight of this MTB tour.
