Mountain Bike Trails and Parks
Mountain bike parks are ideal for practicing and perfecting your skills. There is also a number of special trails to choose from.
The Bikepark Brandnertal in Bürserberg, the largest of its kind in Vorarlberg, features 11.8 kilometres of downhill and freeride tracks for beginners and experts.
Easy to medium level tracks guarantee downhill fun for both beginners and the advanced. Routes feature challenging obstacles such as numerous steep curves, jumps, wooden elements, etc. In addition, there is also a competition calibre downhill track (difficulty level high) designed especially for experienced bikers and professionals. It features high jumps, demanding passages with countless tree roots, sections of difficult to negotiate terrain, and also steep gradients. Available equipment also includes practice areas and drop zones as well as oversized air cushions for learning new tricks (in suitable weather conditions). There is even a fun sports track for downhill mountain cart and monster scooter rides!
But that’s not all: trial courses, beginners and advanced courses, enduro tours throughout the region, and mountain bike camps are organised and carried out by trained guides at the Gravity Academy Bike School. Bikes and accessories can be hired locally.

The Burgwald Trail in Lech am Arlberg is Vorarlberg’s first official freeride and enduro trail. Legs of intermediate and high difficulty, which deviate from the easy original route, cater to ambitious riders. Bike wash facilities at the end of the trail make for extra convenience. Freeride and enduro bikes can be rented upon prior arrangement at the Sportalp Strolz and Intersport sports dealers in Lech.

The Single Trail on Muttersberg above the town of Bludenz is a great mountain bike experience. With more than 700 vertical meters covering almost 5 km its an almost endless gravity experience. The trail starts at the cable car mountain station at 1,401 m and was created as a multi-trail, where each section has its own character. It can be used from early May to early November.
