From the Garsten municipal office, the trail leads via the Garsten power plant to the Eckhard country hotel. From Eckhard we hike into the Dambach to the Weidmann inn. Now we continue first on a goods road, later on a footpath to the Rumpl-Höhe. Over an asphalt road down to Langenstein, now turn left and on a footpath down to Scharleiten, further to Breit and on a meadow path down to Laussa.

It continues down to Pechgraben and we can either turn right on the district road to Großraming or turn left and hike to the book monument.



Additional information:
In times long past, the rafters of the Enns Valley used this path when they marched from Steyr back into the Enns Valley to Kastenreith or Hieflau after a strenuous rafting trip.

They saved themselves the many twists and turns of the river course by using the shortest route between Garsten and Großraming. So you are hiking on historical paths when you walk this trail.
