More information

from direction Admont: from Admont 10 km B 146 Gesäusebundesstraße, shortly after the junction Johnsbach the car park is on the left side
The trail begins with the crossing of the Enns bridge at Johnsbach station, a footpath leads to the station, after crossing the tracks a forest road begins, which you follow to Gstatterboden. Several "wooden books" challenge us to "look closely" or "listen closely" and thus point out special features of the landscape or of fauna and flora as well as the rushing of the Enns. Especially in spring, the abundance of flowers along the path is a delight for all flower lovers.
Stop off at the National Park Pavilion in Gstatterboden and visit the exhibition on Planspitze!
