Bicycle tour along the Hintergebirgsradweg with slight ascents to Weißwasser and a short, steeper ascent to the Hirschkogelsattel, followd by a rapid descent to Brunnbach.
On the former route of the forest railway, the cycle path leads into the Reichraminger Hintergebirge, the heart of the Kalkalpen Nationalp Park. The round covers 46 adventurous kilometres, the difference in altitude is 522 metres. From the Anzenbach car park to the managed Klaushütte the route is also suitable for families with children - little incline!
From the Klaushütte you cycle along the Großer Bach to Annerlsteg and Weißwasser. We've covered 23 kilometres here. Many bikers turn back here to enjoy the return trip along the green and pristine streams once again. But if you want to do the round trip via Brunnbach, you need a little bit more condition. On almost 5 kilometres 200 meters of altitude difference to the Hirschkogelsattel have to be mastered. From there it goes for kilometres downhill to Brunnbach and further following the Plaißabach back to the Maieralm, where the round closes. We cycle back to the starting point along the already familiar path.
Please do not forget to save the tour "offline" (top right), because the mobile phone reception in the forest wilderness of the national park is not always available.
Bicycle, mountain bike, bicycle helmet, drinks and food for on the way
For hot summer days - pack swimsuits! Along the way you can descend to the stream and rest on sunny gravel banks or take a refreshing swim in the crystal clear water.
