The Zillertal Höhenstraße has five differnt access points in total. The southernmost begins in Hippach (between Mayrhofen and Zell am Ziller), the northernmost in Ried, only ten kilometers after the mouth of the Zillertal Valley. It makes no difference which access point is used by road bikers, as the five ascents are all more or less equally steep and long. The highest point at 2,010 metres can be reached via the southernmost route.
Tip! The access road from Ried is least busy during the summer months, meaning you are virtually alone on the road as a cyclist.
