Profile Eisentalhöhe-southeast

This ascent to the Eisentalhöhe is part of the Nockalmstraße, a tourist attraction. In my opinion it's a pretty nice road but I've seen better ones. The road is not really calm and loved by motorcyclists. The surrounding area is full of nature but not spectacular. The road is wide and hardly anywhere particularly steep. The Nockalmstraße includes two passes and lacks significant side streets. The lowest point between the two passes is located at the Sackelalm. The ascent of this web page begins at this alm with a 500 meter interval of 11%. However, the road soon flattens and even a short descent (5 elevation meters) is encountered. After a total of 2.5 kilometers, after a hairpin bend to the left, the asphalt gets steep again, which sets the tone for the remaining 4 kilometers to the pass. The slope fluctuates between 8 and 11% with a steepest kilometer of 10.9% halfway. For me, this climb was the most pleasant part of the Nockalmstrasse because it is varied here thanks to the many curves and because there are quite some nice views.
