Downhill & Freeride 

In 2010, the Herrnsteig became the first designated downhill trail in South Tyrol-Südtirol. It is open from June to mid-October but closed to hikers and other pedestrians. The ascent is with the Plan de Corones-Kronplatz cable car from Riscone-Reischach. In 2014, the simpler and shorter Furcia was opened, and in the summer of 2015, the Piz de Plaies and the Gassl were inaugurated. In the following years, other, cool trails were built. All of them will be open from July to September, depending upon the summer operating hours of the cable cars.  

  • Herrnsteig: 8 km (5 miles) distance, difficult, Kronplatz 2000 cable car, descent toward Riscone
  • Furcia: 4.7 km (2.9 miles) distance, medium, Ruis cable car, descent to the Passo di Furcia-Furkelpass  
  • Piz de Plaies: 3.8 km (2.4 miles) distance, medium, Piz de Plaies cable car, descent to S. Vigilio di Marebbe-St. Vigil in Enneberg 
  • Gassl: 8.6 km (5 miles) distance, easy/medium, Olang 1+2 cable car
  • Korer Trail:  900 m, difficult, valley station Riscone
  • Andreas Trail: 906 m, difficult, valley station Riscone
  • Skills Park Cir: exercise park, Piz de Plaies cable car
  • Off-road Trails: Reserve guides from the local freeride centers

Are you getting curious? Is your reason letting go and your heart taking over? Then only one thing can help: signing up for a get-acquainted course and then trying it out! The local freeride centers provide the perfect support. The right bike (it’s best to leave the lightweight carbon fiber model down the hill) and the complete “suit of armor” with upper body protection, arm and leg guards, gloves, and a closed helmet transform the biker into a courageous knight.

Anyone wishing to hone their skills will try their tires on the 30 m (100 ft.) long Pumptrack next to the sports zone in Riscone-Reischach. This is the place for kids to romp around. But a few old hands or late starters can still learn a thing or two! Still have questions?
