In summer there is also the opportunity to swim, fish or go for a boat ride in the Erlaufsee.
From the south to Bruck/Mur - Kapfenberg, then B 20 over the Seebergpass into Mariazell country.
In the center of Mitterbach we turn left onto the B20 towards Annaberg. At the end of Mitterbach we already pass the Erlaufstausee - here we have the opportunity to take a break at the Erlaufstauseeschänke (please note the opening hours!).
Now follows also already the first easy ascent, before we come to the first real ascent to the Josefsberg.
Afterwards, the trail goes steadily downhill or flat until Wienerbruck or Reith and Sägemühle. In Sägemühle we turn right onto the L101 towards Ulreichsberg.
In Ulreichsberg we turn right towards Walstern-Hubertussee and follow the road until we come to the beautiful Hubertussee (here or at the Wuchtlwirtin we can take a short break). Then we drive through the Rechengraben towards Mariazell, at the end of the Rechengraben we turn right again.
Shortly after we come to the Kreuzberg, here it goes again steeper uphill. Once we have passed the Kreuzberg, we are back at our starting point, the main square of Mariazell, after about 1.5 km.
