Stockach - Sulzlalm - Material Ropeway - Simms-hut
The valley station of the material cable car of the Frederic-Simms-Hut lies deep in the Sulzltal, a side valley of the Tyrolean Lechtal. The tour destination lies at about 1750 m in the middle of the Lechtal Alps and can be reached from Stockach. From Sulzlalm car park you drive along a narrow road to the south, past the Sulzlbach district. In Sulzlbach a gravel road begins and the actual part of the MTB tour begins. The first part runs on a moderate gradient through a spruce forest. After 2 km on the gravel road you reach the famous rock tunnels. It is advisable to bring a torch, because the tunnels are partly quite dark. A few metres after the rock tunnels, the goods road begins to become somewhat flatter. The gravel road leads from here on a leisurely gradient along the right side of the valley into the Sulzltal. After a 30-45 minute drive you reach the Sulzlalm, where you have the possibility to stop. The Sulzlalm is open daily from mid-May to mid-October. The further course of the MTB tour continues to the Ronigalpe, a cattle stable and finally even further to the valley station of the material cable car of the Frederic-Simms hut. The last section after the Ronigalpe becomes quite bumpy and partly very steep. A good mountain bike is an absolute must for this route. The bottom station of the Simms-Hut cable car is about 250 m below the Alpine Club hut. The ascent to the Frederic-Simms-Hut takes another 30-45 minutes. During the summer season you can stop at the Frederic-Simms hut or stay overnight. Due to the difference in altitude of more than 800 m and a distance of 7 km the tour is not suitable for beginners.
