Ore Trail

Open
The Ore Trail is ideal for an evening walk as you can enjoy the sun light even longer in the higher altitude of Fastenberg on Planai.
The trail is situated at an altitude between 1,050 m and 1,350 m above sea-level and therefore offers a terrific panoramic view to the plateau of Ramsau and the Dachstein massif as well as Rohrmoos.

The Ore Trail has its name from the mining of argentiferous copper ores, that were mined for at Krahbergzinken, starting from the 17th century. For this purpose the miners used the "Ore Trail" to transport the ore to the town of Schladming.

Exit from federal highway B320 East of Schladming (at the gas stations) and continue on Planaistraße road towards Fastenberg. After about 3.5 kms you reach Hotel Poserhof where the trail head is located.
From Hotel Poserhof you pass by Gästehaus Bergwelt and then walk along the Brandweg road. When you reach the trail junction with trail n° 50, you take this trail uphill to the Wieslechnerhof farm. There you make a right and walk along trail n° 100 to a hairpin in the forest road. About 50 meters after the hairpin you turn-off right onto the hiking trail, which is the historic Ore Trail, that takes you through the forest and over meadows (ski pistes in winter) to the moutain terminal of the 1st section of the Planai cable-car. A few steps further you reach a hairpin of Planaistraße road, wich you walk downhill for about 500 m to Berggasthof Jager inn. Walk past the inn and descend via a meadow trail to Planaistraße road below. Here you continue to the right via a forest road (a ski trail in winter). Once you leave the forest you make your way across a ski piste again and pass by under a ski lift station and follow the forest road downhill to Hotel Breilerhof . At the hotel you follow trail n° 100 through the forest until you reach the hairpin above the Wieslechnerhof farm again, from where you take the known way back to your starting point.
Esepcially nice in the evening.
