Author’s recommendation

TIPP: Mit dem Gravel- oder Mountainbike über den Almweg auf die Schönleiten und Einkehr im Schönleitenhaus, www.schoenleitenhaus.at.

Von dort hat man einen traumhaften Ausblick auf das Hochschwabmassiv - bis zur Hochschwab-Südwand.

Ich habe die Tour vom Pogusch aus gemacht. Sie ist als Kalorienburner vor dem Abendessen im allseits bekannten Steirereck gut zu gebrauchen.
