MTB tour via Kelchsau to the Tiefentalalm hut

This easy to moderate mountain bike tour through the Langer Grund Valley in the Kitzbühel Alps takes us from Hopfgarten in the Brixental valley to the Erla-Brennhütte and the Tiefentalalm mountain huts.

In Hopfgarten we cycle up the valley on the road to Kelchsau. The Kelchsauer Straße road (L205) accompanies us through the winding valley to the meadows around the village and on to Innerkelchsau to the parking space at the Zwiesel power station. Passing the toll station for cars we come to the junction of the Kurzer Grund and Langer Grund Valleys. Here we turn right towards Langer Grund. With a steady, gentle gradient (average about 3.5%) we cycle through a landscape where alpine meadows and forests alternate.

The asphalt ends at the Moderstock tavern and the route continues on a gravel road towards southwest. After the Erlauerhütte (snack station Erla-Brennhütte) we reach the Erlau-Almen alpine pastures and the road continues to a bridge over the Langer-Grund-Ache stream. A short, steep ascent follows and we have reached our destination, the Tiefentalalm inn.
