The Blairwitch Trail (T27) is a naturally constructed single trail with a black (difficult) degree of difficulty near the Baumgartnerhof at Faaker See.

This trail features roots, stones and sometimes narrower passages. However, the flow is never lost, which is why the trail is really fun to ride.

Author’s recommendation

The combination of this trail with the Flowgartner, Lowgartner and Latschacher trail is simply perfect. Don´t forget to stop for lunch or dinner at the Baumgartnerhof or at the Burgschenke.
