  Due to heavy rainfall, the forest roads have unfortunately been considerably washed out and damaged. Therefore we ask you to be very careful when gravel biking.

Are you ready for the gravel bike tour in the Inner Salzkammergut? The Salzkammergut Trophy gravel bike route is the ultimate challenge for gravel bikers every year during the legendary Salzkammergut Trophy in the Dachstein Salzkammergut. On this training course you can also embark on a gravel adventure between Hallstatt and Gosau during the bike season!

The highlight of the Salzkammergut Trophy gravel bike training course C

Lake Gosau, Lake Hallstatt, beautiful alpine pastures, majestic glaciers,... this gravel bike route is full of highlights!

The Salzkammergut Trophy gravel bike training course is not only a physical adventure but also a scenic dream. Here you get the full load of Dachstein Salzkammergut. With the Lake Hallstatt, Hallstatt, the Waldbach Strub waterfalls, Gosau's mountain pastures and Lake Gosau including Dachstein it is the highlight tour par excellence in the Inner Salzkammergut.  


The gravel bike route

In contrast to the race, the start on the training course is not in Obertraun but in Bad Goisern at Lake Hallstatt. From the Goisern Mitte car park, you first go through the town to the Goisern South exit. Here there is a bicycle path or the road that will take you to the "Gasthof zur Post". Here the route continues below the Arikogel to Untersee, where it is not far to the Lake Hallstatt.

On the R2, the esat bank biking trail, we finally cycle along the Lake Hallstatt directly to Obertraun. We briefly ride on a spectacular suspension bridge over the deepest part of Lake Hallstatt before we get our first glimpse of the World Heritage site Hallstatt. The path continues to Obertraun until we reach the lido. An ideal bathing place during a summer tour. After the lido you pass the official starting point of the gravel bike competition of the Salzkammergut Trophy.
Then it goes in the direction of Hallstatt. Here the gravel biker can save themselves the steep ascent to the Salzberg and also on the training course it goes directly into the Echerntal. Now there are about 1 000 meters of ascent in front of you. Up on an asphalt road through the Echern, past the Waldbachstrub, admiring the rugged mountain Plassen, to the highest point of the tour - the "Durchgang Alm".

After a relatively short driving time you reach the Rossalm (hut), an ideal stop to replenish your reserves before a long descent to one of the most beautiful places of the Salzkammergut begins. Shortly past the "Löckenmoos" (Place of Happiness) you pass the Ebenalm and then it lies in front of you: the Lake Gosau with its majestic Dachstein glacier! There must be time for a short photo!

After a short breather from the long and demanding descent, the gravel route leads along the Lake Gosau road to the sawmill and a small bridge. There we continue on the trail next to the "Gosaubach", away from the traffic. You will pass the valley station of the Dachstein West cable car before you pass the rural part ofGosau at Dachstein. A mountain pasture in the village, one would almost think, many sheep, cows and horses line the way here. You continue through the so-called fairytale forest until you reach the fishpond Gosau.

Now the asphalt is calling! On the national road it goes down now up to the "Gosauzwang" crossing, the border between Bad Goisern at Lake Hallstatt,Gosau at Dachstein and Hallstatt. On the left the national road leads to Bad Goisern. Here you drive again briefly along the Lake Hallstatt before you return to the Bad Goisern South entrance and finally to the starting point.

Vis-à-vis users

1. The tours presented for hiking, walking, biking and road biking, mountain biking, motorbiking, horseback riding, climbing, cross-country skiing, and going on skiing and snowshoe tours etc. are to be considered non-paid tour recommendations and only serve as non-binding information. We have no intention of concluding a contract with the users of this website. The utilisation of the data does not lead to the establishment of a contract with us.

 

The data may only be used for private use; any commercial use is prohibited. In particular, it is not permissible to offer the data on commercially run websites, file-sharing platforms etc. or to use it to develop commercial products. Downloading data does not imply that users are granted rights to the data concerned.

 

The tour recommendations posted were created with utmost care; nevertheless, we assume no liability for the correctness and completeness of the information.

 

We point out that neither the tour recommendations included on this website nor the associated data and information were posted by us, but rather by third parties (Art. 16 Austrian E-Commerce Act). We have no influence on whether the details provided (e.g. distance, level of difficulty, change in altitude, description etc.) are authentic, correct and complete. We do not review these third-party contents. For this reason, we assume no liability for the authenticity, correctness and completeness of the information.

 

Construction-related measures or other influences (e.g. landslides and similar occurrences) can lead to temporary or permanent changes in a route (e.g. loss of a bridge and similar occurrences). Such occurrences can lead to part of the route or the entire route becoming impassable.

 

The use of the data as well as undertaking (riding, walking, taking etc.) the recommended tours or using the network of paths occurs at users’ own risk and on their authority. In particular, users themselves are responsible for the choice of route, outdoor orientation, adherence to traffic rules, supplies and equipment for tours listed in Point 1 (e.g. bicycle etc.), wearing a helmet, estimating their own fitness, recognising dangers and maintaining an appropriate velocity. We exclude ourselves from any liability whatsoever for damages, in particular accidents, that occur whilst taking part in the recommended tours.

 

2.Some of the tours lead over roads with normal traffic conditions. Please observe that there is an increased risk which can be avoided by means of appropriate attention and proper estimation and implementation of one’s own abilities. For this reason, please travel a route that is unfamiliar to you slowly and with special care. Pay constant attention to potential dangers and always observe traffic. Do not leave the routes featured in descriptions.

 

The potential use of private roads, in particular forestry roads and agricultural transport roads, can be subject to legal restrictions, which must be observed and adhered to.

 

The normal traffic rules apply. Each user (e.g. biker, motorbiker) is responsible for adhering to these rules and maintaining his/her bike/vehicle and its equipment (lights, brakes etc.) in good working order. Each user is also responsible for ensuring that he/she rides at a velocity that is appropriate for the conditions and his/her skill level and for maintaining sufficient distance to the rider in front. We explicitly recommend adjusting velocity to correspond to the respective field of vision, wearing a helmet, using reflective clothing (or similar) and employing bicycle lights in line with regulations.

 

3.Each tour requires good physical fitness as well as detailed planning. We explicitly recommend only taking the tours in the case of optimal healthiness.

 

We recommend that you conclude an accident and liability insurance policy. Use an onboard computer that displays the respective kilometres travelled per day and is calibrated for the front wheel.

 

4.Special for mountain bikers – Fair-play rules:

 

Mountain biking is one of the most wonderful outdoor leisure-time activities. Whilst biking or on a mountain biking tour, mountains and lakes, meadows and cabins are re-discovered in new ways. A couple of rules for fair play in the forest help to avoid conflicts whilst mountain biking.

 

a.Pedestrians have the right of way: We are accommodating and friendly to pedestrians and hikers. Upon encountering these fellow travellers, we alert them by using the bicycle bell and slowly overtake them. We avoid paths with heavy pedestrian traffic altogether. Take nature into account: We do not leave refuse behind.

b.The braking distance should be half of the total distance visible: We ride at a controlled pace, are ready to brake and maintain a braking distance half as long as the total distance visible, especially in curves, because we always have to count on obstacles on the path. Damage to the path, stones, branches, wood piles, grazing livestock, cattle grids, barriers, tractor-type forestry machines and authorised vehicles pose dangers that we need to be ready for.

c.Don’t drink and drive!: Do not drink alcohol when mountain biking. Take care at stop-off points (dealing with bike racks, dirty shoes or clothing).

It is obligatory to provide first aid!

d.Marked routes, closed paths and blockades: Keep to the marked routes, observe the blockades and accept that these roads are primarily for agricultural and forestry use!

Blockades can often not be avoided and are in your own interest. Biking beyond the intended path and outside of opening times is punishable and turns us into illegal bikers.

e.We are guests in the forest and behave accordingly, including vis-à-vis forestry and hunting staff. Whilst mountain biking, mobile telephones and music players are forbidden! Biking requires your full attention.

f.Avoid unnecessary noise. Out of consideration to the animals living in the wild, we only bike during full daylight. As a principle, we always wear our helmet (even when riding uphill)! Don’t forget emergency supplies: We always have a repair set and bandages along.

g.Don’t overestimate your skills: We should not overdo it when it comes to biking technique and physical fitness. Take the level of difficulty posed by the route into consideration and make a precise estimate of your experience and skills as a biker (braking, bell, lights)!

h.Close gates: We approach grazing livestock at a walking pace and close every gate behind us. We should avoid causing escape and panic reactions in the animals. Nothing stands in the way of the fun and athletic challenge in the mountains and forests!

i.Traffic rules: The general traffic rules (StVO) apply for all the mountain biking routes and we adhere to them. Our bike therefore needs to be in perfect technical condition and equipped in line with the traffic rules, including brakes, a bell and lights. We inspect and service our mountain bikes regularly anyway.

 

5.We assume no liability for the contents of external websites; in particular, we assume no liability for their statements and contents. Moreover, we have no influence on the design or contents of the websites to which hyperlinks on dachstein.salzkammergut.at.at lead or from which hyperlinks lead to dachstein.salzkammergut.at.at.
