Description:
Super nice trail first to the Weiße Kreuz, then to the cross of the Glashüttenberg and the Sonnbergspitzl.Tour length: 16.5 km and 1074 metres in altitude.

Directions:
We start directly at Oberland railway station, cross under the main road and cross a large meadow, the so-called Türkenschanze, to reach the start of the hiking trail, which leads us directly to the Weißes Kreuz (White Cross). Keeping to the right, we continue downhill for another 100 metres over a ridge to the cross on the Glashüttenberg. We follow beautiful single trails downhill through the forest until we reach a forest road that leads us into the Lugergraben. Passing the Vorderlug, Mitterlug and Hinterlug farms, we continue uphill along forest roads.

At km 8.8 we have to keep right along the relatively new forest road until after 200-300 metres we branch off to the left in the forest to reach the Weißes Kreuz again. We continue walking, after a few hundred metres we turn right and follow lovely single trails through the forest towards Sonnberspitzl. Great views of Gaflenz and the surrounding area open up to us on the way down. We run slightly downhill along the edge of the forest through the so-called Kohlbachriegel until we reach the B121 main road after 15 kilometres. We cross the road in the direction of the football pitch and turn left along the cycle path back to our starting point at Oberland railway station.



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
