Continue through the magnificent floodplain along the Steyr river, past natural swimming spots, rest areas and adventure stations via Leonstein and the national park municipality of Molln – while enjoying the views of the Sengsen and the Tote Gebirge mountain ranges – to the turn-off to the Kremstal cycle path R 10.
