Rappoldkogel

Open
A hike in the heart of the Styrian Randgebirge. We hike from the parking lot of the Alte Almhaus along a forest path to the "Gerti Törl", where the hiking trails divide. Now we keep to the right and follow the marked hiking trail 505 B to climb 300 meters uphill to the summit of the Rappoldkogel, 1928m. The somewhat steeper descent leads us directly to the Salzstiegelhaus. The way back is flatter and leads along the forest path (hiking trail 505) back to the Alte Almhaus.
The starting point of this hike is the "Altes Almhaus" mountain inn. From there, hiking trail 505 leads on a flat stretch in the direction of the Rappoldkogel. On the left side you can see the stone statue of the Virgin Mary in the distance - church services are always held there in summer. Follow trail 505 to the "Gerti-Thörl" where the Rappoldkogel tour branches off from trail 505 with trail number 505B. The ascent to the Rappoldkogel begins slowly (only experienced hikers should consider the Rappoldkogel variant) - a leisurely and slow pace is taken on a hiking trail to the summit of the Rappoldkogel (1900m) - from the summit there is a wonderful distant view of the Mur valley - after the obligatory summit photo, the trail continues in the direction of the Salzstiegelhütte - immediately after the summit, a few stone steps lead downwards where a beautiful hiking trail follows the steps. After approx. 2.5 hours from the start, you reach the Salzstiegelhütte - tasty home-cooked meals invite you to linger and relax - freshly strengthened, you return to the Alte Almhaus on hiking trail marker 505 - a flat, wide trail (a cross-country ski trail in winter) - walking time approx. 1.5 hours.
