Description:
This circuit with a length of 17.4 km and 940 hm leads over forest roads and in pathless terrain to the Habichleralmen. The unmarked hunting trails are hardly recognizable, the tour is very strenuous, a brisk progress is almost impossible. Not an easy tour, something for individualists who like to search for the way!

Directions:
Start of the tour is the train station Reichraming, which is located on the left at the beginning of the village. You cross the rails at a nearby underpass and run the Heinzel road about 4.1 km, above the power plant Großraming you branch off to a meadow. Here it goes straight up towards the forest, which one climbs pathless and very steep in the Direttissima. At the top of the Habichleralm, keep left along the Fortstraße until after 300m a trail leads right into the forest.

As an alternative, you can also walk along the forest road, which then branches off into the forest after 2 km. On the left opens a magnificent view of the Dürrensteigkamm, of which the Almkogel is the highest peak.  I can only recommend the forest road because, as it soon turns out, the terrain around the Brunntalmauer is very strenuous and difficult to progress. Steps and paths are only recognizable with a lot of imagination, dead wood, windthrow and a lot of brushwood make a speedy progress impossible. Sometimes you pass a marking or sparsely existing Steinmanderln, which give hope to be on the right path.


Once you reach a small saddle between Brunntalmauer and Fahrenberg, the trail only goes downhill through the woods, past rock towers until you reach a forest road again. From here it is still a good 9 km run through the Niglgraben, to the train station Reichraming.



Tip:
very strenuous, partly very steep and pathless terrain, densely wooded forest sections.

Safety guidelines:
Be sure to take trekking poles, because very steep and sloping terrain.

(From my point of view, the route is not or only conditionally suitable for trail running).



Equipment:
The required equipment always depends on the particular tour and the weather conditions. Regarding the food: This is very individual and it is recommended to have rather too much than too little with equipment and food. For a 5km round in the valley you need less than for a demanding tour in the mountains. The weather can change quickly and if you are not constantly on the move or need to take a break, for example, warming clothing is of great importance.

 


We have a general checklist for you here:


 



  • Weather-appropriate running gear for the season - weather forecast - region - elevation. This includes:


    * a waterproof rain jacket


    * a waterproof rain trousers suitable for running


    * Gloves and warm headgear (hood/headband/towel).


    * sunglasses + sunscreen + headgear for very warm days


    Trail running shoes



  • Drinking bottles, softflasks or a hydration bladder with enough liquid for the respective tour (if necessary also salt tablets/magnesium)

  • Snacks for the energy boost in between: Energy bars, gels, chocolate, trail mix,

  • Running backpack: ideally a trail running vest / a trail running backpack or a belly belt for small tours.

  • Drypack: to keep your valuables or change of clothes dry (optionally a small garbage bag).

  • Emergency blanket

  • Small first aid kit. An Israeli bandage is highly recommended: this is a one-handed wound and pressure bandage. Details can be found here.

  • Emergency whistle (often integrated in trail backpacks)

  • Cell phone

  • Maps (online and/or offline)

  • E-card or insurance card

  • Some cash

  • Grödeln/Spikes: these can be a great advantage in winter and icy conditions.
