Turn-by-turn directions

You start at the Moorlehrpfad car park and immediately follow the cross-country trail that leads directly towards the Enns. The trail continues along the Enns River in a westerly direction, accompanied by fairytale hoarfrost formations. You run through a floodplain forest until you finally come out onto a sunny meadow. The trail now makes a large bend and leads slightly uphill to the main road. Here it turns east and you continue to run or skate west - always with the Frauenberg pilgrimage church and the Hochtor group in view - until the loop closes and crosses our entry trail. Now the trail leads back towards Enns, where you cross the Ardningbach at the "Haider" farm, which often enchants us with bizarre ice formations. Continue along the Enns with momentum to the Mödringer bridge, where the trail turns east again in a large arc and, after a loop, meets up with our familiar trail again in front of the Haider homestead, which you follow to the starting point.
