Description:
This really beautiful and relatively easy 15.1 km circular route first takes us through the Schmiedleiten, then through the romantic Rinnerberg gorge and then along forest paths around the Rinnerberg. Without the Rinnerberg summit there are 418 metres in altitude to conquer, with the summit cross it is 539 metres

Directions:
The tour starts at the bus stop at Leonstein Castle. Immediately behind it begins the path that takes us through Schmiedleiten. Pass by the old buildings of the Sensenmacher and head downhill. After about 2km we turn into the woods and enter the Rinnerberger Gorge. Lovingly designed signs show us the way. After crossing a small bridge, the path climbs quite steeply on narrow paths until we reach the Rinnerberg waterfall after about 3.5 km. An ice staircase overcomes the height of the waterfall. Continue along a pleasant path, past the Bärenhöhle (bear cave), which takes you down into the valley. Continue along the road to km 6,7 and turn onto a forest track. Follow the forest road, which climbs slightly and takes you around the Rinnerberg. If you have the time, you can climb to the top of the 878-metre Rinnerberg. It will certainly be worth it. The climb is steep, but you are rewarded with a summit cross and fantastic views of the Alpine foothills. The actual summit cross of the Rinnerberg is still a few hundred metres away, hidden in the forest.  Returning to the same route, we rejoin the forest road and continue, climbing briefly before descending rapidly until we reach the Heindlmühl road at km 10,6, which we follow back down to our starting point.

Tip:
Visit the summit cross on the Rinnerberg.

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.

  • Folding poles for trail running

  • Headlamp
