Koglhof - Sallegg Enjoyment Trail

Open
Wonderful viewpoints along the tour. Combine the hike with a visit to the summer toboggan run or the motor skills park.
The hiking trail leads in a wide arc from Koglhof up to Sallegg and back again on the other side of the Almenland Panorama Road.

You start at the summer toboggan run, where there is also a refreshment stop. The route then continues to St. Georgen with its church worth seeing and on to Aschau, a beautiful village with magnificent farms. There the ascent begins through the forest up to Sallegg. Unfortunately, the Obi Hansl hut is no longer open there, so there is now no place to stop for refreshments.

At the country road, we keep to the left and walk back down to Koglhof. The last section of the trail leads along the Waldlehrtpfad (forest nature trail) and the Kreuzweg (Stations of the Cross) into the centre of the village. Past the Augsten Inn and the parish church, we reach the starting point again at the summer toboggan run/GH Rodelstub'n.
