The mountain bike tour around the mountain Schafberg and lake Wolfgangsee is a moderate mountain bike tour. Even for the less ambitious riders, this tour is to create certainty. Only the 1.8 kilometers long climb from Rußbach to the lake Schwarzensee with an average of 10% - max. 14% and for technically inexperienced bikers a short pushing section at the first meters of the departure from the Eisenaueralm be a significant challenge. The remaining sections of the Wolfgangsee MTB Tour are a very pleasant sightseeing tour.

Who wants to start this mountain biking tour in St. Wolfgang in the Salzkammergut region, must take one of the parking fee. It is also possible to start the mountain bike tour in Strobl and take until the end of the Wolfgangsee MTB tour a visit to the beautiful town of St. Wolfgang. From St. Wolfgang im Salzkammergut the MBT leads along a cycle path to Strobl. At Kilometer 3, turn left and immediately right again from about 300 in a very narrow way.

The next 2.5 kilometers in the direction Rußbach have been marked as a bike path but not yet as a mountain bike tour. The signs of MTB Tour as Schafberg MTB Tour, there are only from the Schwarzensee until the end of forest road in Scharfling at Mondsee. In advance of the sections of St. Wolfgang to Schwarzensee and Scharfling to St. Gilgen look good in the map. The slope on the two-lane asphalt road to the parking lot before Rußbach Schwarzensee is 1.8 kilometers long and has an average gradient of 10% - max. 14%.

On the next 4.5 kilometers, the mountain bike tour leads along the right bank of Lake Schwarzensee along and then begins a long time with no major climbs on the Moosalm up at kilometer 14. After then comes a 5 kilometers ascent to Eisenaueralm with an average of 5%. At the beginning, is the increase a little more demanding - max 10% and then to Eisenaueralm, always flatter. For a break in this section you can choose between the farmed Moosalm and Bacherhütte on the pasture "Eisenaueralm".

After a break at the cozy pasture "Bacherhütte", with good views of the Schafberg, starts after a few hundred meters, the technically difficult part of the descent. Because these 300-400m long descent is very steep and the gravel is quite loose, you should just push your mountain bike, if you are not sure. The rest of the downhill to Scharfling provides no more specific tasks, but mainly offers a really brilliant vantage point to the lake Mondsee in Upper Austria. In Scharfling follows on the "Mondsee Bundesstraße" the last climb on the Scharfling to St. Gilgen (approx. 4 kilometers) before you drive along the bike trails (Mozart bike path and Salzkammergut Cycle path) on Abersee and Strobl to St. Wolfgang, the finish of the MTB Tour Wolfgangsee.

In the last part of the Wolfgangsee MTB Tour are mainly the local transits in St. Gilgen and Strobl, and the cycle road of Abersee to Strobl well worth seeing.

Mostly, the ways have been created around the Wolfgangsee for cyclists and pedestrians. We cyclists and mountain bikers should not use these roads as a racetrack. Please take particular attention to children and bathers.
