Safety informationSimilar to ski slopes and hiking trails, approved mountain bike trails and mountain bike single trails are also divided into difficulty levels. Essentially, the slope conditions, hazards, but also the trail condition are decisive for the classification into very easy, easy, moderately difficult and difficult trails.
It is recommended to start with the easiest difficulty level (green) and to inspect each mountain bike trail well in advance.
Riding on the trail is only allowed with the necessary protective equipment (helmet, goggles, gloves, protectors and suitable shoes) and a mountain bike appropriate in this area of use!
