The starting point for this varied tour is the Längenfeld sports center. From there you drive in the direction of Camping Platz and follow the Ötztal Cycle Path (No. 11) into the valley to Huben. At the soccer field, turn right and follow the signs to Feuerstein. Right from the start, things get really steep. After some time of exertion, you come to a crossroads. Here you can follow the path to the left to make a detour to the Alpengasthof Feuerstein. However, to get to the Polles Alm, follow the forest road that leads away from the small chapel on the left. The fresh, chilled beer is already waiting for you at the front Polles Alm. But the refreshment has to wait until departure. Whoever stays on the saddle for the next 3.5 km has conquered one of the steepest climbs in the region.

Author’s recommendation

The tour runs along developed trails and is easily ridable by e-bike or mountain bike.

Hintere Polles Alm

Turn-by-turn directions

The Mountainbiketour to the Hintere Pollesalm is perfect for bikers who want to prove their climbing skills. Right from the start in Huben, it goes crisp steeply to the point. The gravel road quickly rises from the bottom of the valley towards the Alpengasthof Feuerstein. There the route describes a sharp bend and bends into the Pollestal. Without a breather, the height meters continue to rise before the bike. The temptation is great to give up at the inviting beer garden of the Vorderes Pollesalm. But the refreshment must wait until departure. If you stay in the saddle on the following 3.5 kilometers and 326 meters, you will have to overcome one of the steepest climbs in the region. Too bad the Hintere Pollesalm is not farmed on 2102 meters. Fortunately the return path is only a matter of minutes.

Public transport

Travel safe and comfortable with the train to the Ötztal Bahnhof train station. Last stop and exit point is the train station Ötztal Bahnhof. Afterwards you can travel smoothly and quick with the public transport or out local taxi companies through the valley to your desired destination.
