St. Johann

Very challenging hand-bike route with several steep ascents. Some sections cover the 2009 Seniors' Cycling Championship course.

Highlights

The trail to Kirchberg is quite winding but perfectly signposted, simply follow the trail markers. Beautiful landscapes! A good physical shape and enough stamina are required for this tour – especially for the track leading up to Kirchdorf. You can also bypass this steep section by turning right at the church, and following the river shore to Erpfendorf.

Trail description: Starting point is the Oberbürghof. Keep to the right towards St. Johann – straight ahead across the village center, two roundabouts – along B 178 federal road, direction Salzburg. Turn left at the M-Preis supermarket in direction Gasteig – always follow the green signs to "Kaiserquell" – turn left towards Kaiserquell. Some 15% ascents, other parts with less change in elevation towards Jagdschlössl. A slightly descending or flat trail leads towards Schwendt, Kössen – steep ascent before you reach Schwendt (2009 Seniors' Cycling Championship course)- further on to Kössen, turn right at the roundabout towards Erpfendorf. Turn right in direction Kirchdorf past the church, then turn left and right again at the next Raiffeisen bank – in direction St. Johann. At the Spar supermarket you keep to the right, B 178 federal road – alternatively you can take the cycle path running parallel to the road until you reach km 44.3 – follow Innsbrucker Straße, turn right at the car repair shop – return to Oberbürghof.

Nature - Splendid mountainscape of the Wilder Kaiser massif as lovely backdrop!
