Flow Trails, Pump Tracks & a Skill Area
For the adrenaline-fuelled and sporty cyclist, or simply for a change of pace while hiking, there is something going on in Maria Alm and Dienten. Waves and steep turns through forests, forest paths, and slopes or grass paths - two professionals from Allegra, designed the trails and guarantee cyclists on the Hochkönig a unique riding experience.
On the trails of varying difficulty and length, beginners and experts alike will find their personal flow. You can easily rent a suitable off-road bike directly at the valley station and take the mountain railway up the mountain in summer.
Flow Trail Hochkönig - Skill Area/Pump Track
The Hochkönig Flowtrail starts at the Bürgalmbahn mountain station - from there you first follow the hiking trail to the Bürglalm and then to the Hirscheggalm. Shortly after the reservoir, the water flow trail begins through the forest and down into the valley! An exciting trail for the whole family. The trail ends at the football stadium in Dienten, from where we cycle a leisurely 1.5 km back to the village.
Nani & Mariedl MTB Trail
The starting point is the Dienten ski centre. Take the Bürglalm chairlift for a comfortable ride. Approx. 300 m above the Bürglalm cable car mountain station (in the direction of Wastlhöhe) is the entrance to the two single trails. These are characterised by deeply rooted sections and partly narrow curves. Between Nani and Mariedl Trail is a short ride for pushing. Great trail with a difficulty level of S1-S2. Finally, you reach the main road (B164) - from here you ride onto the adjacent road "Reizegg" and follow it back to the starting point.
At a length of more than two kilometres, the "Flow One" promises fun and action mountain biking. From the top station of the Natrun cable car (free bike transport) to the valley at 288 metres above sea level, with varied terrain and pure riding fun.This trail is suitable for beginners and families as well as single trail experts.
E-mountain bike rental
The motor-assisted e-mountain bike is a convenient alternative that you can borrow at local rental stations.
