A hiking enjoyment pure is expecting you at the Panoramaweg 100. A loop hiking trail on the left or on the right-hand side of the Enns, with a length of 117 km and at an altitude from 700m to 1300m.
The stages to the south of the river Enns takes us over the slopes of the 4 mountain ski area of Reiteralm, Hochwurzen, Planai and Hauser Kaibling and through the villages Mandling, Gleiming, Rohrmoos, Untertal, Haus im Ennstal, Michaelerberg, Stein an der Enns and Öblarn.
Changes in weather patterns, quick falls in temperature, thunderstorms, wind, fog and snow are some of the dangers that can be encountered on a hiking tour. Hosts of alpine huts and mountain refuges have a lot of experience in the mountains and can give good advice about weather and the trails. Poor equipment, overestimation of one's own capabilities, carelessness, poor personal constitution and/or wrong judgement can lead to critical situations. In case of thunderstorms: avoid summits, ridges and steel ropes.
GPS data and orienteering
Available GPS data - just like hiking maps - is only a guidance for orientation and can never depict a trail exactly with all its details. Especially at dangerous spots it is essential to judge on site how to proceed.
Stage 1 - easy - 5.5 hours From Öblarn via Gatschberg and Stein an der Enns up to Michaelerberg
The first stage of the southern Panorama Trail 100 first takes us up the Enns valley quite easily. From Stein an der Enns our route starts to climb a little more, without any big difficulties though. Finally we reach the Michaelerberghaus.
