New from 2024

NEW from 2024: Old and new acquaintances: The brand new checkpoint Penkkopf high above Kleinarl is also waiting for your starter card. With two new trails, the Stoneman Taurista is even better!

The setting for this extraordinary mountain bike adventure is the impressive mountain scenery around Flachau, Wagrain-Kleinarl, Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, Radstadt, Forstau, Filzmoos and Obertauern.

In freely selectable stages, the Stoneman Taurista is your very own individual mountain bike adventure. From Altenmarkt, the 1,768 meter high Rossbrand beckons: an overwhelming panoramic view of over 150 striking Alpine peaks - such as the Dachstein, Bischofsmütze and the Grossglockner in the Hohe Tauern - is the reward.
The Stoneman Taurista winds its way to Mandlberg against the fantastic backdrop of the Dachstein mountain range. Here, the Mandlberggut invites you to linger with delicacies and homemade spirits. Via Forstau, the route climbs up to the idyllic alpine pasture of the Oberhütte am See - situated at an altitude of 1,860 meters. The experience of a real Alpine pass awaits you along the fascinatingly jagged rocks of the Seekarscharte. Once you have crossed the winter sports mecca of Obertauern, you pass impressive natural spectacles - such as the mighty Johannesfall, which is over 70 meters high - on your way back to the valley towns of the Salzburger Sportwelt.
