R15 Niederschöcklweg

Open
Gasthaus Theisslwirt-Schöcklsattel-onto the Schöckl plateau (1445m)-to the starting point
This hiking trail leads from the Theisslwirt inn via forest roads and hiking trails on the south side of the Nieder-Schöckl to the Schöcklsattel (1300m), from there you can then climb up to the Schöckl plateau (1445m) or descend via the Niederschöcklkammsteig to the Theisslwirt inn. Likewise, on the north side, a forest road leads down to the Schöckl road and also back to the starting point.

This hike, which involves a bit of effort, will reward you with a magnificent panoramic view, starting from the Almenland to the north-east, the Hochschwab region, the Grazer Bergland, the West Styrian and East Styrian hill country and as far as Slovenia and Hungary.

More information

The start is at the foot of the Schöckl at the Gasthaus Theisslwirt, Fam. Greimel. After a short ascent (approx. 800m) you reach a flat forest road and follow it to the gravel road that leads up from Steingraben. Already on this forest road you have a magnificent view of the city of Graz. Now head uphill past the Johann Wallerhütte in the direction of Schöcklsattel. Here you can continue to climb towards the Schöckl plateau or hike southwards along the somewhat strenuous trail over the Niederschöckl ridge back to the Theisslwirt inn. Also the newly built forest road (R14) offers to descend in the direction of Semriach and then take the more comfortable way via the Schöcklstraße to the starting point.
