The special thing about the Rauchbodenweg is that, despite the easy terrain, you can still look deep down. On the one hand, you can see down to the Enns, which roars tirelessly along. On the other hand, you can look up into the legendary rock world of the Gesäuse. There is an unforgettable view into the Haindlkar with the Peternpfad and there the striking Hochtorgruppe greets you. And all this in just an hour's walk.
