Directions:
The tour starts at the railway station in Micheldorf. We walk in the direction of Georgenberg, which is clearly visible just south of Micheldorf. Climbing steeply up the road, we come to a signpost where we turn left into the forest. Wonderful single trails now quickly take us higher up until we come to lonely forest roads on the opposite side. We reach the highest point of the tour at the summit of the Zederbauer Spitz at 1082 metres. A small summit cross marks the wooded peak. The route continues steeply downhill until we reach the forest road again, passing the Eustachius cross and continuing downhill to Altpernstein Castle, which towers high above Micheldorf. We keep to the left and walk partly down the tarmac road, take a shortcut along field paths, cross a ditch until we reach the outskirts of Micheldorf again. Crossing the village, we quickly return to our starting point.

Tip:
Beautiful guest garden with a great view at Altpernstein Castle.

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
