TRAIL TOLERANCE2022-03-24T12:31:51+01:00

WE ARE IN THE MOUNTAINS

Therefore, it is imperative that we all act accordingly. Towards wild animals, the flora, the alpine economy with grazing animals and towards other mountain-loving user groups such as hikers or walkers. Let’s try to avoid as many conflicts as possible together – therefore please keep to the following rules and of course to our terms of use!

TERMS OF USE

By riding the trails in the Bikepark Brandnertal and using the entire infrastructure you agree to the following terms of use:

Our terms of use

RIDE ONLY ON MARKED MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAILS

Please stay on the marked mountain bike trails. In the meantime, there are several of them in Brandnertal. Please respect that biking is not allowed on trails not explicitly cleared for mountain bikers. These paths are reserved for hikers. In this way, conflicts can be prevented.

DON’T CUT THE TRAILS

Be sure to stay on the marked routes, and do not cut across meadows, pastures, or forest floors. Even if there are people who find so-called “shortcuts” funny – shortcutting hurts the turf and causes great damage as well as soil erosion! If you are observed or caught doing so, you must expect that your ticket will be confiscated without replacement. As you can see, it is really important to us that no meadows, pastures or forest ground outside the marked trails are ridden on and thus damaged.

RIDE ONLY DURING OPERATING HOURS

The wild animals also need their rest. Especially at dusk, wild animals forage and should not be startled. Therefore, respect that all trails may only be ridden during the operating hours of the bike park. Outside these, the routes of the bike park are closed without exception.

CLOSE GATES & PASTURE GATES

The routes of the Bikepark Brandnertal run for the most part in the pasture area of the local Alps. Here grazing cattle are on the move. Therefore, it is important that pasture gates, barriers or gates are closed again after the passage. Otherwise, grazing livestock may get into areas that are dangerous to fall or become undetectable.

DO NOT LEAVE WASTE IN NATURE

Please be careful to put all trash, packaging, or the like back in your backpack and dispose of it properly in the nearest trash can or at home. If you find trash anywhere during your bike day, it’s best to just take it with you or let our track staff know. Let’s work together to keep our environment clean.

AVOID NOISE & BRAKE MARKS

Even if one or the other trail would like to elicit a whoop – we are in the mountains and should therefore avoid noise as much as possible. Do not leave any traces in nature. On single trails, shared trails or forest roads, avoid skid marks or slipping tires at all costs. This damages the subsoil and very quickly leads to erosion by water. During the next storm, sections of road can be literally washed away.

SHARED TRAILS AND COMMON AREAS

“Shared trails” are trails that are shared by mountain bikers and hikers. These “shared trails” are signposted accordingly for both user groups. Mutual respect and careful driving as well as walking avoids conflicts. Show yourself as a biker on “Shared Trails” from your best side and give hikers the right of way! Besides, a friendly greeting between two outdoor enthusiasts never hurts.

ALWAYS RIDE CONSIDERATELY. RESPECT FLORA & FAUNA

Always ride respectfully – not only on “shared trails” but also on bike park trails. Remember that you too could fall at some point in a blind spot. Keep as quiet as possible when passing grazing animals or wild animals and do not frighten them under any circumstances. Ride slowly past animals.

DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?

Do you have other questions?

Here are the answers to all the topics!
to the FAQ's
Why do routes and obstacles have to be inspected before riding?2022-03-24T13:28:29+01:00

Even if you already know routes – sections are sometimes renewed or completely rebuilt. So it is necessary that on each visit you roll down the routes on the first run, stopping if necessary to look more closely at difficult places to assess the risk as good as possible.

Why are lost tickets not replaced?2022-03-24T13:04:12+01:00

Because the finder of a ticket could pass it on. Please make sure that you do not lose your ticket. Stow this in a zippered bag or in your shoe (between insole and shoe). This works great and a shoe is just very rarely lost. In the case of personalized multi-day or season tickets, replacement of the ticket is only possible upon presentation of the invoice and for a manipulation fee of EUR 5.00.

What happens if I still take shortcuts on trails?2022-03-24T12:59:52+01:00

If you are observed or caught doing so, you must expect that your ticket will be confiscated without replacement. As you can see, it is really important to us that no meadows, pastures or forest ground outside the marked trails are ridden on and thus damaged. In general, please follow our Trail Tolerance rules.

What does “drive on half-sight” mean?2022-03-24T13:09:36+01:00

Drive on half-sight means, that you have the possibility to stop safely at any time, and an oncoming road user (e.g. on forest roads) also has the possibility to stop.

Is it true that sometimes cows lie on the trails and take a nap?2022-03-24T12:58:53+01:00

Yes, that is correct. Together with the local farmers, we decided on the concept of open grazing. Moreover, the grazing animals were there before us, and are allowed to lie down wherever they want. Therefore, please drive at half sight at all times and respect the grazing animals. Brake and just give the lying or standing cow a little space, and ride around. In this case, you may even actually leave the trail briefly, which is normally not allowed. By the way, the cows of Alpe Rona (Tschengla) and Alpe Parpfienz (Brand) produce probably the best cow’s milk you can get. Stop into one of these alps, and order yourself a glass of milk. It does not get fresher than this. If you need more energy, grab the buttermilk.
