Who is responsible for forest roads?

A large part of the forest roads is managed by the Service Unit Forest and alpine pastures - Forest trails and public drinking fountains.. managed.

In principle, forest roads are truck-accessible roads that primarily serve the management of the forest.

Who is allowed to drive on forest roads?

There is a general ban on driving on all forest roads. Driving on forest roads is only allowed in exceptional cases as part of a forestry activity or with a special permit.

Where are there currently roadblocks?

Sill Gorge:

In the area of the northern access to the Sill Gorge (from Innsbruck/Wilten) there are ongoing large-scale closures due to construction work on the Brenner Base Tunnel. In this regard, please note the information on site.

The following routes are closed:

  • From Bierstindl along the existing railroad line
  • From Bretterkeller via the road to the Sill Gorge
  • From the lower Sill bridge downstream towards Innsbruck

Closure of mountain bike trails:

Due to the new construction of the Mühlau Springs by IKB-AG, increased construction traffic/heavy traffic is to be expected on the MTB route "5017 Arzler Alm" from the Arzler shooting range to the Arzler Alm. On the MTB routes "506 Seegrube" - "505 Höttinger Alm" - "5018 Bodensteiner Alm" - starting from Hungerburg - the section between Rosnerweg and Arzler Alm is also affected by construction traffic.

Due to the construction work on the spring tunnels, the MTB route 5016 Rundtour Rumer Alm or the connection via the Herzwiesenweg to the Rumer Alm is closed and not passable.

The construction work and the associated impairments or closures will continue until the end of 2024.

Please also note the attached signage of the IKB.
