Turn-by-turn directions

From the train station at Winterbach, the route leads on the asphalt road past the Hotel Winterbach along the trail no. 9 (b). On an easy ascent one crosses the B 28 and goes along the access road to the Mitter- und Untereierzeile. Here a refreshment stop is possible. The route continues further past the Löffelgrabenkreuz (cross) (Tabernacle Bildstock) (Middle of the 16 century) on the old pilgrimage route towards Mariazell. The route continues moderately rising on a forest and meadow trail to the "Obereierzeile" and to the gravel road, which leads to the Foresters House „Kreuztanne“. Turn right here onto the road No. 8, which leads through natural and unique hunting grounds at 1100 m above sea level. On a gently sloping forest road passing at the hunting lodge "Klauswald (forest)", one reaches a clearing. Continue to the Alm (cabin) Hochbärneck, on a sloping footpath on colourful pastures and meadows, past grazing animals and rare plants.
