Mex Line 1
Everyone talks about flow at the moment. We understand this because the feeling of being taken up completely by mountain biking and to think of nothing else but mountain biking is fantastic. Flow trails promote this feeling and offer in general an easier and family-friendly access to mountain biking. Trail World of Mountains at Nassfeld has added such flow trail to its trail portfolio in 2018. It is the latest of the shaped lines here at Nassfeld. Apart from the well-maintained culture trails that perfectly fit the surroundings and have been created over centuries, new trails - with fun factor and tailored towards mountain bikers - are now added. An experience for mountain bikers. An experience for us.
Into the valley with many variants
The flow trail at Nassfeld is a work of art - it meanders in sheer endless curves across four kilometres and 400 altitude metres into the Drava Valley. The trail was planned and finally built with precision in 2018. The drainage was handled and, always looking for the best line in the terrain, curves and fixtures were created.
All the work has paid off - the trail meanders downhill with many variants. The surrounding forest along the trail changes constantly - sometimes dense and dark, then open and lush green. We reach an open meadow and see around 20 curves of this mountain bike marble run already on the first third of the trail. The forest then opens the view into the valley and to the surrounding mountains - you do notice the wonderful quiet in this alpine pasture landscape.
The pass road across the Nassfeld Pass always stays in view. It seems that this road had been forgotten in the past. For traders, the road was a popular alternative to Saifnitz and Predil until the 16th century, but it became less important over time. It was only during World War I that the road played a major role again when the military road was extended and the location became an embattled war zone. The pass is now accessible on the Austrian and Italian side all year round. The pass is perhaps a bit like the region’s mirror.
A bike region of the highest quality has been developed here slowly but steadily in recent year - in part almost unnoticed and even derided by alpine regions situated higher up. But if you have experienced Trail World of Mountains once, you will definitely come back - for the trails, the people, the mountains, the lakes and much more. Having surfed the last curves across the ski slope downhill to Tröpolach, we push our bikes on the gondola which takes us back to the access point. We want more ... more curves, more waves, more flow.
