Description:
This circular route leads us from the center of Molln, first over the Steinköpfl, and then exclusively on forest paths around the Hohe Trailing. It is also possible to climb the Hoher Trailing.

Directions:
The tour starts at the bus stop at the National Park Centre in Molln. We walk left towards Breitenau until we turn right onto Denk-Hauptstraße. After half a kilometre a path branches off to the right into the forest. Climbing steeply up wooden steps, we soon reach the summit of the Steinköpfel. Then descend again and return to the road. Follow the road uphill for half a kilometre and then turn right onto the forest road for the next 17 kilometres. At kilometre 8, we come to a junction where we can decide which way to go, as both roads meet at the same point.

We take the right one and continue. The trail climbs slightly, with wonderful views of the Mollner Ramsau, and circles the Hohen Trailing. At 8.9km there is the possibility to climb the Hohen Trailing on a steep path through the forest. A path over a mountain ridge leads directly to the summit cross with magnificent views of the Alpine foothills. The actual summit, with a small, simple cross, is still hidden a few metres further in the forest. The descent follows the same route. On the forest road we follow the path to the left, past a beautiful hunting lodge, until we come to the crossroads again. We go right. Continue along the forest road, past the Kreuzhuberalm, until after exactly 20 kilometres you come back to the sealed road. We run past a farm on the right and then down through a short wood below the Steinköpfl. Then it is only a few hundred metres to Molln.



Tip:
No refreshment or water points along the route.

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
