Description:
Circular route with a length of 13.5 km and 742 metres of ascent. Very beautiful views over the Upper Austrian Pre-Alps. The hilly peaks of the surrounding countryside provide a fantastic panorama.

Directions:
The tour starts at the bus stop in the village centre by the church. We walk in the direction of the Wolfsjäger Chapel, which is located just behind the church. Straight ahead along a meadow path we reach the Schüßleder Chapel. Behind it, we walk downhill across meadows to the Unterbuchschachner campsite. A short stretch on the road, then steeply uphill to the right along a track. At the Stubauer farm, we reach the main road in Arthoferberg, which we now follow to the Dichtlbergerhof farm. Behind the farm, the forest path begins, which leads us towards Arthofberg. At kilometre 4.6 we turn right and now walk steeply uphill across alpine meadows towards Arthofberg, a short stretch through the forest and then we reach the summit cross of the Arthofberg (860m). The route continues briefly through the forest again, down across alpine meadows to a signpost on the Durchlaufner forest road. Here you follow the forest road towards the Glasenberg summit. Past a barrier and then steeply uphill on a path through the Böchgraben, across meadows to the summit of the Glasenberg (971m).

Marvellous panoramic view of the nearby Lindaumauer, Freithofberg, Sonntagberg etc. We continue down to the Glasner Hütte. Here we can top up our water supply. After the hut, we keep to the right. At Vorderglasnergütl we turn left down to Hautzenlehengütl. In Höllgraben through a short section of forest, over a small wooden bridge. From here, the route continues uphill for a good kilometre towards the village centre.



Tip:
If you get the chance, you should definitely stop off at Gasthaus Schaupp (right next to the church in the centre of the village) and enjoy the legendary pastries from the wood-fired oven and other regional specialities.

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
