    Portjoch (Brenner)
    Description

    Unbelievable, which trail treasure is hiding high above the Brenner highway! Heads of riding technique who are free from giddiness discover an old, unknown military road far behind the border crest at the Portjoch, which dives down into the Pflerschertal in countless turns – a border experience in two respects!

    Many years have passed since the Second World War. It is all the more surprising that the spider-like military road network, which winds its way along the border crest for ten kilometers, is in such excellent condition. The tour starts in the slightly morbid village of Gossensass under the route of the Brenner highway. From the train station, the tour begins with a short section into the Pflerschtal valley, before working its way up the first 300 meters of altitude difference to Inner- and Aussergiggelberg on asphalt. Here begins a wide, well-maintained military road, which winds in many hairpin bends – at first through the forest, but soon in open country – up to the border crest. Once you reach the top of Sandjoch (2165 m), you are spoilt for choice: turn right and go up and down to the northern outpost of the border crest on Sattelberg – and back the same way? Or would you rather turn left to the most spectacular part of the border crest? In a fascinating panoramic drive, the 80-year-old supply road always leads west just below the crest, towards the striking Pflerscher Tribulaun (3097 m). The path becomes narrower and narrower, the mountain world wilder and wilder, until at the Portjoch (2109 m) nothing is possible for bikes anymore. Only few dare to go south here. And discover an unknown Dynamite Trail, which leads in countless bends into the Pfleschtal. At the top, the trail crosses the Portkessel to pass a prominent meadow hill in waltzing mode consisting of easy to ride serpentines. The path is often wide and has military foundations, but time and again the ravages of time have made it so difficult that it is better to descend. Apropos: Except for an extremely steep staircase, this path is usually only moderately difficult, but very exposed. So take care: Whoever flies loses! Down in the Pflerschtal valley you can work off the excess adrenaline on the asphalt road before the loop closes at Gossensass station.
