If you are looking for a very special mountain bike challenge, then is the Stoneman Taurista – Mountain Bike Trail in Salzburger Land just perfect for you.
Hirschleiten Trail - Kleinarl (intermediate)
A new single trail has been opened in Kleinarl. The trail starts in approx. 300 altitude metres below the Kleinarl Hut. Initially a leisurely trail across alpine pasture ground, it turns into a real root carpet in the lower part. Enjoy a 3 km long “direct downhill run” with 400 altitude metres to Kleinarl.
The Bikeseason is starting. May was a sunny month in recent years. Lush greenery, fresh meadows and the white mountain tops appear in contrast. There may still be snowfields in higher locations and to carry the bikes in some places.
Rain showers and thunderstorms towards evening are typical for June. But there is plenty of sunny and dry time for sports activities during the day. Special are the long days.
Hot days with temperatures of up to 35°C and weather for going swimming can be enjoyed in July. We recommend to go hiking, biking and doing other exhausting activities in the early hours of the day.
“Everything is possible!“ is the motto for sports enthusiasts in August. You can still enjoy July weather until mid-August. The days will get shorter and the temperatures start to drop after that.
This is the perfect month for all activity holidaymakers because the temperatures reach between 15°C and 20°C. Start saying farewell to summer at traditional farmer’s autumn festivals.
The hours around lunchtime are best for biking in October. Arm and leg warmers on morning and evening tours are recommended. The maximum temperatures during the day reach around 20°C. However, it can get quite fresh and snow can also be expected although it doesn’t stay on the ground.
Flachau‘s bike mountains turn into the perfect ski & snowboard mountains in winter! Also great for tour skiiers.
Biking is possible in the valleys, e.g. on the Enns Cycle Track, and in up to 1,300 m on the sun-facing mountain slopes. There may still be snow or snowfall in higher locations.
