Sachenbach mtb - July 19

Sachenbach mtb - July 19

1 minute read

We returned on our bikes to a place I hiked few weeks back (Sonnenspitz blog post). We discovered few singletracks in the area but one I did not back then was Sachenbach trail. As it is rated S3, I was skeptical about going down the trail (some pics show rocky sections I am not yet fond of - just more practice :-) ). You can go around via gravel road and later hiking path (S0-S1). Of course that was not our case. [ Read More... ]

Schöttelkarspitze & Soiernsee round hike - Jun 19

I discovered Soiernsee this week while browsing Instagram and I immediately checked if we can sleep over in the hut (Soiernhaus). There were 5 places left on Friday (nothing for Saturday) Let’s do it. I was surprised to see in hut conditions: arrival prior 17, the reservation will be freed after 19. This was not ideal for our plan to hike via few peaks on Friday ater work. I contacted the hut via various sources (email, phone, sms), no reponse so we prepared ourselves for everything.

I am visiting 4th in the row the same destination - right below Tegernsee. You know that feeling when you hike and find singletracks? Then you ride your bike there and find mountain range for hike? The latter was the case for us as we discovered Blauberg crest hike on Friday. The hike is not that long, 20 kilometers total but due to the rocky sections on the way up and also down, it takes a bit longer. [ Read More... ]

Around Rossstein mtb - Jun 19

We found few singletracks when we hiked to Rossstein 2 weeks ago. The most appealing is the Röhrlmoos Alm trail (it can be found also on trailforks) and one that leads to it (don’t go all the way down via gravel road). [ Read More... ]
