Off-Road Bike Park
The start of the Off-Road “Lakata” Bike Trail is located directly at the Moosalm on Lienz’s Hochstein Mountain. The 2.2-kilometre route meanders past the Venediger guesthouse, through forest passages and via the World Cup ski piste to the valley station.
The route layout is impressive: In addition to several big jumps, there are three wooden bridges with jumps with wave combinations, many changes of direction and some very physically challenging sections.
“Particularly the wave combinations are great fun for professionals and beginners alike. There’s something for everyone” says Alban Lakata. The bike park was named after the East Tyrolean triple marathon mountain bike world champion Alban Lakata.
Several more bike tracks are planned for 2018. As well as an expansion on the current Schlossberg trail, two more longer trails, the so-called Sternalm Trail and Hochstein Trail, will be on offer to bikers looking to improve their off-road bike skills. Here downhill enthusiasts will be able to have a blast whilst keeping an eye on the sunny town of Lienz down below. The Hochstein trail will offer pure downhill fun in wild nature. Part of the famous Dolomitenmann track (an extreme sports competition taking place in September each year) is also planned as part of the new bike project.
A new bike centre which will offer information about the tracks as well as cycle and equipment hire will be based in the valley next to the Hochstein cable car station, perfect for visitors looking to have a go!
