It's the roughest and toughest route in the BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN: 10 km & 1.500 m of gnarly downhill in alpine terrain.
Distance 10.1 km
1:10 h
5 m
1,427 m
2,787 m
1,360 m
For those who bring the technical skills, a strong head and a strong physique, the Long Trail Fernar is a true bucket list ride! For everybody else, the combination of 4 trails is a no-go.


You start at the top of the BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN: the Tiefenbach glacier. The deepblack Fernar Trail (only accessible via shuttle booking) runs through super challenging high-alpine terrain down to Gaislach. 
To recover and refuel you should either stop at any of the huts before the next track: the Löple Trail
After passing by the wooden huts and Gasthof Sonneck, Gaislach Trail starts to the right and brings you to the lower section of Nene Trail – another technical black natural trail that winds down through the woods and brings you to the final Schteckler Trail and down to the Gaislachkogl station.

Please yield to hikers!

Between 10am and 3pm the trail is accessible for hikers only.

You can stop, refuel & recover on the Gaislach Alm & the Löple Alm.
