STONEMAN TAURISTA TOUR IN AUSTRIA
THE mountainbike adventure in Salzburgerland, Radstadt
What is the Stoneman Taurista? A fantastic mountainbike trail in the Austrian Alps and a challenging route for experienced mountain bikers that leads you through the Salzburgerland.
Mountainbike adventurers may already know the Stoneman Dolomiti in Italy, the Miriquidi in Germany or the Glaciara in Switzerland. In July 2018, the Stoneman Taurista was opened in Austria – right here in Pongau, joining the family of ultimate mountain bike trail routes.
The impressive mountain scenery around Flachau, Wagrain-Kleinarl, Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, Radstadt, Forstau and Obertauern creates a stunning backdrop for this extraordinary mountain bike adventure and the 3 star Hotel Stegerbräu in Radstadt is the obvious partner hotel with attractive offers and rooms in Radstadt to add a touch of comfort to your Stoneman Experience!

This challenging bike route, created by by Roland Stauder, offers a real opportunity to experience the alpine landscape up close and personal! The trails can be ridden individually by cyclists looking for a challenge, without the stress of competitive pressure.
The tour covers 123 kilometres and has a challenging 4,500 metres of climbing. It is split into 3 evenly spaced stages with crisp climbs and challenging passages over impressive mountain peaks and fast downhill sections throughout Salzburg Sportworld, past lush alpine meadows and idyllic mountain lakes. The cosy mountain inns and huts along the route invite you to take a break, offering tasty food and drink.
In Flachau the trail heads out over the Grießenkareck ridge and down through the Wagrain bike park.

To the south, the Stoneman Taurista passes through the idyllic summer pastures of the Oberhütte farm. The route leads through the winter sports mecca of Obertauern via the 2,110 metre high King’s pass, then back to the valley towns of the Salzburger Sportworld.
