Description

This is a gravel forest road that runs first through the Gaistal Valley and then continues into the Leutaschtal Valley.

From the Ehrwalder Alm, it climbs for about one mile. Just after you begin the downhill section through the Gaistal valley, you'll pass by a small lake, the Igelsee (Eagle Lake). Then you'll enjoy seven miles of nearly continuous descent to the Parkplatz Salzbach (Salt Creek Parking Area) where this trail connects with the Leutascher Ache Bike Trail and a further 10 miles of near continuous descent.

This trail goes through a picturesque valley offering plenty of solitude between the Wetterstein Mountains (to the north) and the Mieminger Kette Mountains (to the south). The views are definitely the highlight of this trail.

Stopping for a moment to enjoy the views and the solitude on the 17-mile descent along the Gaistalbach stream.
