The Bernhard Knauss Run takes you to the upper part of Rohrmoos along the Mushroom Nature Trail and Fairytale Trail.
The run starts at the old sawmill "Aussacher Säge" at the turnoff of Schwaigerweg and takes you uphill to hotel Winterer and back. The run has an elevation change of 339 m and is 8.2 km long. For the most part the trail is made up of meadow trails as well as forest roads and trails. A small part (at the start and the end) is paved road.
The run is named after Bernhard Knauss, who was a successful Alpine skier in the Amercian US-Pro tour where he was 6 times World Champion and 3 times winner of the overall standings.
You can combine this trail run with the Rohrmoos Trail or the Hochwurzen Trail.

GPS data and orienteering
Available GPS data - just like hiking maps - is only a guidance for orientation and can never depict a trail exactly with all its details. Especially at dangerous spots it is essential to judge on site how to proceed.
