In summer this hike is one of the classics in the region. Above all sunrises let you experience the sunrise with a brought breakfast especially romantic. Even in winter, this tour at the foot of the Grimmings loses nothing of its charm and invites you to spend hours full of movement in nature.
A short detour to the excavation site of the church ruin Neuhaus - a few hundred meters after the castle Trautenfels.
Before every snowshoe hike you should always check the current avalanche report - available at www.lawine-steiermark.at. Mountain sports and the assessment of the situation on site are - in winter all the more so - above all subject to personal responsibility. Tourism associations or avalanche warning services do not assume any liability based on information provided.
Do not go on snowshoe hikes alone. Together it is more fun anyway.
Always be aware of risks and react to danger signs.
Observe existing regulations such as hunting and game reserves, reforestation or young growth areas
You should always have your cell phone well charged. Have you also saved the emergency number 140 of the mountain rescue service? If you have no reception, take out the SIM card and dial 112.
Garbage on meadows and paths can not smell mountain and valley. Please take it with you. Agriculture and forestry are important partners for Berg und Tal. They allow you to walk and drive on many of their paths. Be aware that only good cooperation will guarantee your recreational enjoyment in the future.

Shortly after the start, you will cross a bridge (the Ennstalbundesstraße below you) and pass the Moarhof - the organic farm and the headquarters of the Bioinstitute of the HBLFA Raumberg-Gumpenstein. Follow the path and after a leisurely hour on meadow and forest paths you will reach the Grimminghütte. You will surely find a place to take a break, even if only in front of the hut, since the hosts are in the valley in winter and the hut is closed. After a short break you turn right and then walk uphill through the forest towards Tressenstein. Shhh, if you are very quiet there, you might well meet a chamois. Once you have reached the summit cross, you will have a wide view over the whole valley.
