Gaal circular hiking trail - part 2

Tour 20b - 7.8 km - 310 meters in altitude - 2:30 hours - easy -

Gaalgraben to Ingering

short description

On this hike, the cool water is our companion, we walk along a natural torrent. From Gasthaus Wachter on the right side of the Gaalbach along to a fork in the road. There it goes uphill on a forest road in the direction of the Schönbacher junction.

There are some beautiful vantage points along the forest road. Well marked, you come to an idyllic ditch where three farmers still run their farms. The circular hiking trail leads slightly downhill through the Schönbacher-Hof to the next farm. Then it rises again a short distance up to vlg. Herk, where you have a wonderful view over the Gaaltal to Seckau. Here there is also the possibility to continue to the Gaalerhöhe and the Fohnsdorferhütte with a walking time of approx. 2 hours.

After some time we reach the Mußger memorial (was shot in 1934 as a local gendarme by a fleeing National Socialist during an attempted arrest); it continues across meadows and forests to the farm vlg. Unterschindlbacher (hiking marking 908) until you end up back on a forest path. From now on it's downhill to the Gaal holiday park, Gaalerhof or the Gasthaus Kaiser.

Hiking tip

We can determine the starting point ourselves, also choose from the Gasthaus Kaiser or Gasthof Gaalerhof. Opportunity to hike to the Gaalerhöhe.

Interesting viewpoints
