A fantastic panoramic tour that takes you - after an admittedly strenuous ascent - from Zell to the Kreuzwiesenhütte mountain hut and then along a gently undulating 15 km long section into the Gerlos ski area. This panoramic trail leads you almost entirely through open alpine pastures, thus offering unobstructed views of the Zillertal Alps with their glaciers on the opposite side. The descent over varying terrain brings you back down to Gerlos from where you can either return to Zell by bus (decision is up to the bus driver) or cycle back along the main road.
Starting from the railway station in Zell, follow the steep mountain road up towards the "Höhenstrasse" high-altitude road to the Hirschbichlalm mountain restaurant where you can enjoy the glorious, scenic vista. After cycling for around half an hour, your efforts will be rewarded at the Herz-Jesu chapel where you can take in the breathtaking view of the "Gerlossteinwand" rock climbing wall. A little further on, beside the Breier farm, there follows a short flat section so you can give your legs a rest. After that comes the steepest section of the tour, an "hors categorie" climb (as in the Tour de France) up to the highest point on the route followed by the well-earned descent.
Also called as the King Tour of Gerlos, where you ride to the top of the local mountain "Isskogel". From the starting point towards Gerlos Gmünd and then over the Brennachweg to Gerlostalalm. Except of the connection from the "Gerlostalalm" to the "Innerertensalm" is this a flawless and strenuous ascent, which is rewarded with fantastic views of Gerlos, the three side valleys "Schönachtal", "Wimmertal" and "Schwarzachtal" and the glaciers of the Zillertal Alps. A varied descent initially leads down to the "Ebenfeldalm" (Refreshments at the "Arena Center", "Latschenalm" possible) and continue through a dirt trail or through 3 single trails to Gerlos. Be careful on the last 4 kilometers, because agricultural vehicles from the farmers can be expected.
