The Andy Trail - T74 is a mountain bike trail for advanced bikers, which is also a lot of fun for very good bikers. It is characterized by its natural construction, fabulous views of the emerald green Ossiacher See and some fun jumps along the trail. The trail entrance can be reached either via MTB Tour 12 (easier) or via MTB Tour 14 (steep and more suitable for e-bikes).

Author’s recommendation

Before trying out the Andy Trail, ride the Sansily Trail first. Only when this can be ridden safely, the descent on the Andy Trail is really fun. On the first descent, please take a close look at the trail!

Destination

Ossiach

Turn-by-turn directions

The Andy Trail - T74 starts above the village Ostriach directly in the forest and ends there at a forest road.

 

Start to the access road

To reach the Andy Trail - T74, it is best to start from one of the parking lots in the center of Ossiach. Starting from the parking lot in front of the municipal office, all transfer routes (feeder roads) to the trails are also signposted.

 

Description of the access road to the trail entrance:

Starting from the municipal office in Ossiach, first cycle to  the main road (L49). At the junction with the L49, turn right and follow the R2A cycle path for about 1.5km in a westerly direction. At the entrance to Camping Kölbl you can now choose between a very steep driveway, which is more suitable for e-bikes, and a normal driveway.

 

Variant 1: The somewhat easier ascent via MTB Tour 12

From the entrance to Camping Kölbl, follow the R2A bike path for one kilometer. Along the cycle path you will then see an MTB sign with the indications MTB Tour 12 and 13 to the left. Here you turn left across the L49 and follow the beginning forest road upwards. Be careful when crossing the main road! When doing so, please just follow the signs for MTB Tour 12 until you reach a sign that says "Transfer - Andy Trail". Turn left here. Attention: the first part down is a bit steep. If you don't feel up to it, push the first few feet. From here it is only a few meters to the trail entrance.

 

Variant 2: The very steep and difficult ascent via MTB Tour 14

From the entrance to Camping Kölbl, turn left across the L49 (be careful when crossing the main road!) and follow the asphalt road up until you reach the start sign for the "Challenger Tour - 14". Here you turn right into the forest road and follow the very steep forest road and the signs of the Tour 14 until you reach a sign with the inscription "Transfer - Andy Trail". Turn right here and follow the tractor trail. Now it is only a few feet to the trail entrance.

 

Andy Trail - T74

Once you arrive at the trail entrance, simply follow the trail and the signs to the end of the trail.

Once there, you can pedal back to the trailhead via a short steep climb.
