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 the current trail closures?

Umbrückler Alm path:

Due to dringing timber work using a cable car, the entire Umbrückler Alm trail is completely closed to all trail users from April 15 to April 25, 2024 at the latest.

Access via the hiking trails (old Umbrückler Alm trail, 3-person ski run) and a detour via Planötzenhof or Steinbruchweg are possible.


Due to the renovation of the Allerheiligen avalanche barrier, the "Aspachweg" forest trail is not passable for all trail users. Heavy traffic from construction site vehicles is to be expected. Entering the construction site is prohibited.

Local detours have been set up, please take note. Completion of the construction work is planned by summer 2024.

Sill Gorge:

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

The following routes are closed:

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

Mountain bike trails:

Due to the new construction of the Mühlau springs by IKB-AG, increased construction site 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" and "5018 Bodensteiner Alm" - starting from the Hungerburg - the section between the 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" and the connection via the Herzwiesenweg to the Rumer Alm are closed and impassable.

The construction work and the associated impairments and closures will last until the end of 2024. Please also note the signs posted by IKB.
