Cycling and (e-)mountain biking in the Tuxertal
In the Zillertal, more than 80 km of bike and cycling paths invite you to jump on your bike. If you prefer it a bit more comfortable, you can always use an E-bike or if you like breaking a sweat, just use an ordinary mountain bike. In addition to pleasant valley cycling routes, you can also find enticing and sensational mountain bike trails. Freeriders will feel at home on the challenging single trails – and a “hell ride” will surely provide you with lots of adrenaline.

Single trails in the Tuxertal: pure adrenalin for freeriders
Two really strong single trails await you on the Penken, the mountain between Tux and Finkenberg. The “hell ride” and “heaven ride” down-hill trails hold what their names promise: Challenging north-shore obstacles featuring jumps, banked curves and wave lines, will make your bike glow. Less experienced freeriders can bypass the obstacles on the “chickenway”. The ascent is also possible by chair lift.
