This trail allows you to practise the skills you need for mountain biking in alpine terrain and learn the best way to ride uphill and downhill.
A 10 km training trail featuring 17 info panels takes mountain bikers along the Giswil valley floor. The first info panels are next to the Schärmehüttli at the Pfedli forestry depot. The trail continues along forest paths to the Rietlisteg, over the Laui and from there down via Zimmerplatz to the covered bridge and finally to Giswil railway station. The trail helps users achieve a solid mountain biking technique. Info panels along the way explain various exercises and offer hints and tips. The trail includes various challenges in the form of natural obstacles such as large stones and tree trunks.
What's more, QR codes alongside each exercise can be scanned with a smartphone, enabling tutorial videos to interactively illustrate the corresponding activity. The exercises involve varying levels of difficulty, giving beginners and advanced MTBers using the trail the opportunity to improve their skills.
