420 Rastkogel Hut Circuit

Panoramic tour amidst untouched natural landscapes! On route no. 420 you cycle from the tollbooth of the Zillertaler Höhenstraße to the Rastkogelhütte past a few alps.
Panoramic tour amidst untouched natural landscapes!
The starting point for this tour can be found at the toll booth for the Zillertaler Höhenstraße (Zillertal Alpine Road) at Schwendberg. The route continues from there along a gravel trail past the grounds of Schafleitenalm and Sidanalm alpine farms to the Rastkogel Hut, where you have the opportunity to stop for a break. To get back to the toll booth, ride along the other gravel trail that eventually merges back onto the Zillertaler Höhenstraße - please watch out for hikers here.  You will finally return to your original starting point after a few metres on asphalt. This route can also be ridden the other way around!

Tip: Experienced and fit cyclists have the opportunity to extend this tour from Rastkogel Hut to the scenic Sidanjoch. Once at Sidanjoch, the view down to Hochfügen and, of course, the surrounding peaks opens up, revealing a stunning panorama. Take the same route back to the Rastkogel Hut.
