The HARBE LINE is a playful, fun line and cool to ride – however, the steep terrain (especially in the top part) is pretty demanding. 

It kicks off right at the top station of the Giggijochbahn and ends 180 m lower in Hochsölden.

Combined with the OLLWEITE, the GAHE and the LETTN LINE, the HARBE adds up to the 16 km (!!!) Long Line Giggijoch.

Those who love natural tracks can ride the Leiterberg Trail after the HARBE or pedal back on the Rettenbachtrail and the Gampe Trail to the OHN LINE or take the Bartigs Bödele to the Gaislachkogl mid station.

Safety information

The HARBE LINE runs above the treeline in pretty demanding and precipitous terrain, featuring steep descents. Leaving the Line or falling can be dangerous - especially in the upper part of the route.

Although the Line is rated S1 on the difficulty scale, it is only suitable for experienced and skilled riders!

 

The BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN is all about coming together and having the best time on your mountain bike – no matter what your skill level is. So always take care of each other, show respect and support – also towards nature and all other people out there in the mountains and the valley.

 

> Please only ride existing, signposted trails and never trespass open meadows.

-> Avoid skidding, don’t cut switchbacks & leave no trace.

-> Stay alert, never scare animals and always close the pasture gates. In the REPUBLIC there’s always a chance of cattle on the trails and lines. Ride carefully and give them enough room.
