Current information hiking trails

Please be careful!

The Kaunertal is an alpine high valley and stretches over six alpine steps, so there may be snow fields along the hiking trails on some high and panoramic trails in spring. We ask for caution here!

The extensive hiking trail network is regularly maintained by our field staff. Despite careful work, however, it can happen that hiking trails are damaged due to unforeseen weather conditions.

Blocked hiking trails (5.7.2020)

Wallfahrtsweg Kaltenbrunn
Please be sure to note the road block on the pilgrimage route from Kauns to Kaltenbrunn or from Kaunerberg to Kaltenbrunn. The path will be cleared or renovated by the HTB company in the next few weeks. Under no circumstances may the path be followed in the next few weeks - there is a DANGER TO LIFE!

Section of Unterfalpetan -Oberfalpetan water trail
The section of the watertrail from Unterfalpetan to Oberfalpetan (in the Schöntalwald area) is also closed due to rockfall. Oberfalpetan can only be reached via the Wiesenhof.

Due to construction work on torrent and avalanche control, the Thomas-Penz-Höhenweg from Langetsberg to Kehm is closed all summer 2020 from Monday to Friday. The barrier affects all forest roads in this area - including the valley hiking trail from Unterhäuser (Jägerkapelle) to Vergötschen. Please note the barriers and signs.

The high-altitude hiking trail from the Nassereinalm to the Gepatschalm is still closed due to snow fields and winter damage.

Info for driving bans on heavy holiday traffic days

Information about motorcycle restrictions in the Imst & Reutte districts

In order to counteract the noise pollution for the local population in the Imst & Reutte districts a little, the state of Tyrol recently imposed driving bans on a small part of the routes in the Imst and Reutte districts. Due to considerable noise pollution, from June 10th to October 31st 2020 driving bans for particularly loud motorbikes parking noise> 95 dB (A) will be issued on a small part of the road network to protect the people who live there.

Of course, motorcyclists are very welcome in Tyrol - the driving ban affects only 5.6% of the entire national road network and approx. 7% of the vehicles permitted. Here you will find all information about the restrictions and driving bans.
