Steinplan via sunny side

A wonderful summit hike to "the" local mountain of the region, the Steinplan at 1670 m above sea level. A tour for ambitious hikers!
Tour corresponds to trail no. 47a on the regional hiking map (see literature) and in places on local signposts

The municipality of Lobmingtal has around 1800 inhabitants and has existed in this form since the merger of Kleinlobming and Großlobming in 2015 and has borne the joint municipality name Lobmingtal since 1.1.2016. In summer 2020, numerous local recreational and hiking trails were redesigned, marked and signposted, including the hiking trail to the Steinplan via the sunny side of Kleinlobming. The Steinplan can be hiked from many sides and offers a worthwhile destination with the Steinplan shelter, which is located in the immediate vicinity of the summit cross. The route is varied and numerous viewpoints and rest areas invite you to enjoy the panorama, especially on the descent.

More information

From St. Michael in Upper Styria via the Murtal expressway S36 (toll sticker required) to Knittelfeld (24 km, approx. 20 minutes) and on to Kleinlobming (35 km in total, approx. 30 minutes).

From Judenburg via country roads to Kleinlobming (20 km, approx. 30 minutes)

From the center in Kleinlobming (1), 759 m, we walk a short distance into the valley and see the signpost in the direction of Sonnberg. We turn left and follow the asphalt road uphill for approx. 1.5 km. At the crossroads we keep right and after a short while we come to the farm vlg. Kahlbauer (2), 915 m, where we continue left between the garage and the house. We follow the red-white-red trail markings, which are first visible on a forest road and then along a hollow path. At an altitude of approx. 1150 m, we come out of the forest and have a wonderful panoramic view. There is a passage here at the barbed wire fence. Now we continue to the right of the fence, come to a barrier and follow the forest road until we see the entrance to the hiking trail on the right. Continuing uphill along the well-marked hiking trail, we pass a small hut and then turn right again onto the hiking trail. A little way through the forest and we reach a meadow or gravel road, which we now follow almost level. At the next crossroads (3), 1280 m, we see the yellow signpost in the direction of Steinplan with a time indication. Further uphill, we reach the "Überstiegl Papst Pirschtling" crossroads and are now on the well-marked long-distance hiking trail 02. The hiking trail crosses a gravel road several times and leads directly to Steinplan (4), 1670 m, where there is a Naturefriends refuge in the immediate vicinity of the summit cross.
If the snow conditions allow, this hiking suggestion is ideal for snowshoeing. A hike for the whole year.
The nearest train station is Knittelfeld. From here, take bus line 847 to Großlobming or Kleinlobming.
