Elmen - Bschlabs - Hahntennjoch
The Hahntennjoch is an 1894 m high pass that connects the Lechtal with the upper Inn valley. The 29 km long country road over the Hahntennjoch begins a few hundred meters west of Elmen in the Lechtal and ends in Imst, in the upper Inn valley. The Hahntennjochstraße is open from the end of May to the end of October, depending on the weather. During the winter months the section between Boden and Imst is closed due to avalanche danger. The route from the Hahntennjoch to Imst is severely endangered by rockfalls and mudflows and is therefore often closed during storms. The regulation is carried out by radio-controlled traffic lights which are set up at the pass summit and in the valley near Imst. The road to the Hahntennjoch starts in Elmen with a moderate gradient. After a first ascent you reach the entrance of the Bschlaber valley. The road leads on the left side of the valley into the Bschlaber valley. After about 6 km you will reach Bschlabs, a district of the municipality of Pfafflar. The next section between Bschlabs and the "Hahntennjoch junction" will be slightly flatter than the previous section. From the "Hahntennjoch junction", which is just before Boden, the road climbs up the mountain in serpentines. At about 1640 m above sea level you reach the village Pfafflar. The village is nowadays only inhabited in the summer months due to its location. After 15 km you reach the pass summit of the Hahntennjoch at just under 1900 m. As a cyclist you should note that the route to the Hahntennjoch on (weekend) days is also very popular with motorcyclists and cars. The route to the Hahntennjoch is suitable for both mountain bikers and racing cyclists. On the way from Lechtal to Hahntennjoch you can stop in Bschlabs, Boden and Pfafflar. The tour to the Hahntennjoch can be classified as medium/difficult due to the distance of 15 km and the difference in altitude of over 900 m. Depending on weather conditions and time you have to expect a lot of (motorcycle) traffic!
