I'm headed to Reutte, Austria from 26-31 May and bringing my bike. Unfortunately, the only trails I can find online are long, grinding doubletrack climbs followed by long doubletrack descents.
I've already been there and done that and want to ride the loads of singletrack hiking trails that I've seen everywhere there, but I also don't know the rules about whether riding hiking trails in Austria is forbidden. In Germany here we're told not to ride the hiking trails but occasionally do, being very courteous to hikers and allowing them to pass (i.e. not screaming past them at 40 kph).
So, are mountain bikers allowed openly on hiking trails in Austria or, if it is technically forbidden, is it a similar situation where if you're courteous to hikers and don't be an a$$ you're OK?
