Course description

Route

Start at the car park or bus stop at the Gasthof zur Post in St. Radegund. From there you first head east, then north for about 3.5 km to the Lackenalm (offering food and drink). From the Lackenalm, you climb to the summit of the Riebenkofel in about 4.2 km. From here, continue in a northerly direction, turn west at the junction to the Soleck peak and after about 3.5 km you reach the Tuffbad. Then head towards the Wieser Alm (offering food and drink), which you reach after about 2.5 km. From the Wieser Alm, follow the Gailtaler Höhenweg for approx. 1.5 km and you will reach the Guggenberger Sattel (offering food and drink). Continue on the last ascent of the trail to the summit of the Samalm (approx. 850 m). About 3.6 km further south you reach the village of Guggenberg and from there, after another 1.4 km, Maria Luggau. From Maria Luggau, continue south for approx. 300 m until you reach the Gail, which you then follow downstream for a good 4 km until you reach Wiesen.
