You still find them out there! The true mountainbike allrounders. Thos who love a climb and love the challenge of rough downhills. Well, if you are one of those, you will love this enduro route in the BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN! From Sölden you follow the Route Gaislach via Außerwald and Innerwald to the glacier road. After a short while you turn into the forest road (southwards) leading uphill through the woods – it's a lovely ride! Up on the top you have three huts to stop, fuel up and enjoy the jaw-dropping view: Sonneck, Gaislachalm & Silbertal. 

Then it's all set for the black Bodenegg Trail – a rough, super challenging ride down into the valley. The first bit leads through lush Alpine meadows (please don't leave the track). Once you reach the treeline, it becomes much trickier. There some sections where you have to push the bike. At the bottom, follow the Bodenegg Race Track to Gasthof Neue Post. Here you continue on the scenic, but also black Kühtrainschlucht Trail back to Sölden.

The huts are perfectly loacted at the height of the route, so make sure to stop and soak in the amazing view.
