More information

Arrival from Vienna: Option 1: Westautobahn A1 (exit Amstetten Nord), then continue on federal roads via Waidhofen/Ybbs, Weyer (B121) and Altenmarkt an der Enns, Weißenbach an der Enns, St. Gallen (B115).

From Graz and Linz: Pyhrnautobahn A9 (Admont-Gesäuse exit) near Ardning.

From Salzburg: Tauernautobahn A10 and Ennstal-Bundesstraße B146 via Schladming and Liezen.

On forest roads we go steadily uphill to the Niederscheiben, where we fortify ourselves at the Kroiss'n Alm. Then continue on the forest road to the Hochscheibenalm. Once there, it's all downhill to Hieflau.

To complete the cycling tour, you can cycle from Hieflau initially along the main road, then continue on the Ennsbodenweg (Kummerbrücke junction) back to Gstatterboden. This results in a circular route for mountain bikers between Hieflau and Gstatterboden, which is now only on the Gesäuse federal road in short sections.

The "Ennsbodenweg mountain bike trail" section begins at the Kummerbrücke bridge and runs along the left bank of the Enns for just under 4 kilometres to the "Forstgarten" campsite in Gstatterboden. The route, which has no notable differences in altitude, is on an old forest path, the surface of which was deliberately left very natural.

From here on the main road across the Enns and back to the National Park Pavilion.

If that was still too few kilometres for you, you can still include the Rauchbodenweg.

The tour is part of the Trans National Park!

Once you have reached the Hochscheibenalm, you can park your bike and then walk for about 1 1/4 hours along the Jägersteig trail with trail number 642 to the Ennstalerhütte. Preferably after an overnight stay at the Ennstalerhütte, the via ferrata "Teufelsteig (B/C)" to the Tieflimauer is highly recommended. Return via the Ennstalerhütte and trail 642 to the Hochscheibenalm.
