Follow the traces of trade and traffic.
The Ennstal has been characterised by trade and traffic for centuries. Iron from the Erzberg, the products of the iron processing industry and necessary food were transported on the Eisenstraße and on the river Enns. In the past, goods were transported by wagons, rafts and Enns ships, but later by rail and road. The Enns transport route became an energy supplier.
The themed path starts at the historic market place, leads downstream along the Gaflenz past the Schmidbergerwehr. Then you cross the Gaflenz and hike up over the Rapoldeck to Kleinloiben. The view to Kleinreifling shows the way. The trail leads downhill, crosses the main road and then turns right towards the centre of Kleinreifling. Above the cemetery, the path leads to Kastenreith and via the promenade back to the market place of Weyer.
