Inner Valley Trail | Brand

closed

The quiet version of skiing when you glide gently over the snow - this is what you can experience on the Innertal cross-country trail in Brandnertal at the foot of the Mottakopf. The Innertal trail starts at the car park at the Palüdbahn valley station at the end of the village (entry is possible at several points, in good snow conditions also in the village centre at the Beck riding hall). First, turn left and follow the Alvier stream out of the valley until you reach the new multi-purpose building of the municipality of Brand. Here the trail now leads over a bridge to the other side of the stream to the football pitch. The trail makes another loop here before it then heads back down into the valley with two medium ascents and a short descent. After the moderately difficult descent, the trail leads past the Herz-Jesu Chapel and back to the starting point. Alternatively, you can cross the road here and make another loop above the road directly below the Mottakopf. Please note: This last section or loop (difficulty: easy ascent, medium difficulty descent) is not always groomed.
Changing facilities: There are no changing facilities directly on site, but there is a changing facility in the public WC in the Brand community centre or at the valley statíon of the Palüdbahn cable car.
Current status: You can find this in the daily updated trail report.
