Trail running routes in Steyr and the National Park region

Technical challenges/skills of the trails

Runners can find details on the requirements in the respective tour description.
The categorisation into levels 1-3 helps to find tours for the respective experience level. Safety first: reduce speed on difficult passages and when uncertain.


Distanz und Höhenmeter

The classification is a combination of distance and metres in altitude. In Outdooractive there is a 6-star system for your fitness requirements, which is listed under the term difficulty. Tours with...
1-2 stars are blue and fall into the "easy" category
3-4 stars are red and fall into the "medium" category
5-6 stars are black and fall into the "difficult" category

At the beginning of each tour name you will find the designation L1, for example. This means that it is a tour with fitness level 1. Here is a detailed overview of the fitness requirements of the tours:


* 0-5 km and < 250 metres in altitude (= level 1)
** 5-10 km and < 500 metres in altitude (= level 2)


*** 10-15 km and < 800 metres (= level 3)
**** 15-20 km and < 1,200 metres (= level 4)


***** 20-30 km and < 2,000 metres (= level 5)
****** > 30km and > 2,000 metres (= level 6)


How technically demanding are the trails?

Outdoor-Active also has a scale of 1-6 here and the classification is more subjective than the hard facts of distance and altitude metres. The categorisation into levels 1-3 helps you to find tours for your respective experience level.
