Destination

Marketplace Irdning

Turn-by-turn directions

From the market place in Irdning you go about 1.4 km to Schlattham - at the turnoff left on the Sallaberg, from where you have a tremendous panorama of the Grimming. After the descent, before the Enns bridge, there is a turnoff to the right onto the R7, where along the Enns, past the Aigen air base, you join the state road, which leads to Wörschach. After the underpass of the main road you turn left to the only hill climb of about 8 km length through the Wörschach forest. At Km 10,7 you have a beautiful view of the ruin Wolkenstein. In the middle of the beautiful alpine pasture area lies the Spechtensee. During the descent towards Klachau, the back of the mighty Grimming shapes the landscape. Along the R19, the old federal road leads to Untergrimming and on to Trautenfels. After bypassing the intersection of the federal highway, you then ride comfortably along the R7 back to the starting point in Irdning.

Author’s map recommendations

Equipment

Bicycle helmet, cycling clothes, sturdy shoes, rain protection, sun protection and enough to drink.

Breakdowns can happen - but rarely in front of one of the numerous service points: a basic equipment of tools and accessories therefore never hurts! Spare tube and/or patch kit, universal wrench, air pump, brake and shift cable, and a screwdriver can be helpful.
