Hacklberg Trail

Flow-Master with airtime guarantee

[SCHATTBERG-WEST] The Hacklberg Trail from the Schattberg in Saalbach over the Westgipfel summit to Hinterglemm is one of the most beautiful single trails in the valley, and is known throughout Austria as the epitome of a flowing trail. But work comes before pleasure here, in the form of a demanding climb that has to be overcome before being able to enjoy the extra-long descent.

This natural, flowing trail begins right beside the top station of the Westgipfel lift, and heads off down towards the Hacklbergeralm along a grassy ridge. It offers plenty of opportunity for speed, as well as having some berms, smaller jumps, and numerous rollers providing you with plenty of opportunity for airtime. Thanks to its gentle gradient, beginners can enjoy it as well as experts.

Tip: Since summer 2014 there is a new trail from the Hacklbergeralm to the mid station of the Westgipfel lift and the start of the Buchegg Trail. The new middle section in combination with the existing Hacklberg Trail and the final Buchegg Trail provides 1.000 vertical metres of the finest in single trails, and about 10 km of downhill riding.

Important: Please ride controlled and with reduced speed on forest roads. Always respect hikers and other bikers. A friendly "hello" and "thank you" makes a good coexistence! +++ FAIR PLAY +++
