 This version of the MTB Tour Sarsteinrunde is 59.4 km long, has 1,487 vertical meters and is oriented to the MTB Dachsteinrunde black. The beginning of Bad Goisern to Bad Aussee and the last part of Obertraun along the eastern shore of Lake Hallstättersee back to the starting point are identical to the black version of the MTB Dachsteinrunde. In between, you drive on the Salzkammergut Cycle Path via Koppenpass from Bad Aussee to Obertraun. The technically difficult part of the tour is the old forest road in the ascent of Lauffen to the sight – “Ewige Wand” (which can however be avoided on a new forest road) and the next 1.2 km on a wide trail up to the hotel Predigtstuhl.

We start the Tour on the main square in Bad Goisern and the first four kilometers we cycle comfortably on the bike path along the river - Traun to Lauffen. At the federal roads underpass begins the very strenuous ascent up to the “Ewige Wand”. If you are technically not so well versed and you do not want to push your bike the half-time, on the 1.2 km long and with 13% not just flat, stony forest road, you should stay at 5.2 km on the new gravel road. After 7 kilometers we reach the “Ewige Wand”, take a break and enjoy the stunning views of Bad Goisern. The following single trail, again 1.2 km long, in the direction of the Hotel Predigtstuhl is not only due to the average slope of 16%, but also because of the technical difficulties, again very challenging. In the next 12 kilometers you drive, with the exception of two very short single trails, on beautiful forest roads through the forest to the area “Waldgraben”. In the following departure towards Altaussee we leave in Lichtersberg the forest and bike on local roads without much traffic through the lovely village. In the district Sommersberg we reach the MTB Dachsteinrunde Blau and follow this markings down to the next town - Bad Aussee. Then we cycle comfortable on the Salzkammergut Cycle Path from Bad Aussee to Obertraun. At kilometer 36 we leave the road and on a dirt road we drive downhill from Styria to Upper Austria. At kilometer 40 we do not go on the main road to Obertraun, but turn left to Koppenwinkelalm and reach the lake Hallstättersee in Obertraun after 46 kilometers. The next 8 kilometers along the eastern shore of the lake Hallstättersee are very beautifully landscaped. At last we take the cycle paths through the districts Untersee and St. Agatha back to the center in Bad Goisern.
