Route: Parking Salzbach - Leutascher Ache - Gaistalalm - Tillfussalm - Seebenalm - Seebensee

Route description:

Nature jewel: The Gaistal valley and the lake Seebensee

In 2017 this little paradise was voted the most beautiful place in Tyrol in the tv show "9 places, 9 treasures".

This route is one of the most popular cycling routes in the region and leads through the wildly romantic Gaistal. The panoramic and only slightly ascending forest path starts at the Salzbach car park and runs along the river Leutascher Ache, passing the huts Gaistal- & Tillfussalm to the lake Seebensee (the last kilometre is steep and partly on coarse gravel). Route 551 ends at the confluence with Route 813, which you follow until you reach the Seebensee. Refreshments are available at the Seebenalm or after a short (approx. 50 min) but steep walk to the Coburger Hütte. There, not only regional delicacies await the visitors, but also a stunning view of the previously hidden Drachensee, the crystal-clear Seebensee and the Zugspitze. 

Attention pasture cattle, please keep distance and cross the pasture area calmly and quickly.
