The Pitztal Bike Path is like a lifeline for mountain bikers through the entire valley. All connecting tours can be reached from the Pitztal Bike Path, meaning that every tour can be planned on a mountain bike path from the desired location in the Pitztal. Despite the route in the valley area, the 42 km are not to be underestimated and are peppered with slight inclines. The Pitztal Bike Route can also shine with some technical passages, which can, however, be avoided by moving onto the LAndesstrasse.

Start in Plösmes at the Gasthof zur Einkehr (parking spaces available). Almost without a break, the 3.7 km route to the Arzler Alm is decent. With an average gradient of 13 percent, despite the dense forest, which protects against excessive sunlight, you can sweat a bit. The condition of the mostly gravel roads is very good, but caution is required when driving downhill, especially in the hairpin bends. From the Arzler Alm you have a great view of the surrounding mountains.
