  • Höllen-Trail: Various lines on this unmaintained trail exude some danger and should only be tackled by experienced riders. The Northshore elements are a real challenge.
  • Asitz-Trail: The natural trail connects the Home of Lässig with Leogang and can be ridden in both directions. Freeriders and endurance riders will be thrilled by the narrow, yet flowing passages.
  • Hochalm-Trail: On its own or in combination with the Hochalm tour - the stream crossings, root passages and stone fields offer trail bikers a real sense of adventure!
  • Pro-Line: Narrow forest paths, rocky passages, doubles, tables, drops, and a whole lot more offer professionals a perfect playground. This is, naturally, the reason why the Pro-Line is constantly used for top-class bike contests.
