MTB Routes in Bad Gastein

Patschgstuhl ­- Graukogel

The most popular mountain-bike trails in Bad Gastein lead up the Patschgstuhl and to the mid-station on the Graukogel. The starting point is next to the Raiffeisenkasse bank in Bad Gastein, then takes you along the Palfnerstraße in the direction of the Windischgrätzhöhe. From the bridge, turn right onto the Böckstein forest path. This will lead you in a series of switchbacks to above the tree line. There is no hut on the Patschgstuhl for refreshments, so this tour is only recommended for sportier bikers. The goal for this tour (rising some 400 vertical meters) is the Graukogel lift station and the Graukogelam.
