The Jägersteig is a short but exciting hike in the Weizklamm gorge. With caves, a suspension bridge and ropes on the walls to hold on to, it is a highlight in our region.
The starting point of the Jägerteig is the car park in Naas. Right at the beginning, the ascent is a little steeper. The path is impressive, as it is very steep in parts and also leads over iron stairs. Again and again you have the opportunity to enjoy great views of the Weizklamm gorge and beyond. You continue to climb over hill and dale and are rewarded with every additional metre of altitude. On this route there is also the possibility to make a short detour to the Rablloch height. Then you cross a suspension bridge until you reach your destination on the other side of the Weizklamm gorge.
A short detour to the Rablloch Cave rounds off the hike.

The route description presented has been prepared to the best of our knowledge and belief.
It is based on interpretations of hiking maps and personal experiences of hikers and mountain sportsmen.
All descriptions are not to be considered as official hiking guides, the tourism region Weiz assumes no liability for the descriptions, route planning and tours and it is therefore highly recommended to use additional official map material from quality manufacturers, alpine clubs, nature lovers and other mountain sports institutions for individual route planning.
Please remember that hiking, walking, climbing and mountaineering are outdoor sports, which are influenced by the different individual physical condition, the personal condition of the day, the weather as well as the seasonal ground conditions and many other basic conditions and therefore a careful route planning adapted to the respective situation is necessary for the preparation.
We wish you an accident-free and eventful tour.

- Before starting the hike, check the possibilities for refreshments or pack the appropriate food.
- A good hiking boot is a good companion and should never be missing.
- An emergency kit (blister plaster!) belongs in every backpack.
- It is always advisable to dress according to the "onion system".
