The trail leads us after leaving the village area to the state road. We cross it and pass the recreational area of the Stubenbergsee. Now we continue along the cycle path R8, until we reach the parking lot of Tierwelt Herberstein. Here a visit to the Tierwelt Herberstein would be a good idea or we follow the cycle path R8 down into the Feistritzklamm gorge. There we cross the Feistritz (river) and follow it to St. Johann b.H., where after a short climb we reach the parish church and the Haus der Frauen education and recreation center. A break would be just the right thing now. Now it can go on again with full energy. For the way back we can go the same way back or one goes the somewhat more demanding way over the "Geierwand". This path is marked with the number 23.

A very special feature is offered to us in ApfelLand Stubenbergsee.
