The 25km (from Hippach to Zell am Ziller) takes 1hr but the view is awesome... all the way! At the Top (Hirschbichlalm) you reach 2,020mtrs, even if the weather is not great, it's worth the trip!!

This is a small twisting road on the edge of the Zillertal that runs along just below the top of the ridge. You reach it from Reid (at the northern end) or Hippach (from the southern end); just be sure you go the whole way;...More
