The trail climbs steadily uphill on forest roads to Niederscheiben and continues along the forest road to Hochscheibenalm. From here the trail continues to Hieflau but then only downhill.

From Hieflau, the route initially follows the main road and then continues along the Ennsbodenweg on an old forest road back to the Forstgarten campsite.

From here on the main road over the Enns and back to the NP Pavillon.


The bike trail is open:

May, June and September: 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. / July and August: 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Winter closure: beginning of October to end of April

Depending on snow melt and snowfall, the route may be closed longer in spring or earlier in autumn!

Author’s recommendation

If that was still too few kilometres for you, you can still include the Rauchbodenweg.

The tour is part of the Trans National Park!

Once you have reached the Hochscheibenalm, you can park your bike and then walk for about 1 1/4 hours along the Jägersteig trail with trail number 642 to the Ennstalerhütte. Preferably after an overnight stay at the Ennstalerhütte, the via ferrata "Teufelsteig (B/C)" to the Tieflimauer is highly recommended. Return via the Ennstalerhütte and trail 642 to the Hochscheibenalm.

Nationalpark Pavillon / Gstatterboden

Turn-by-turn directions

On forest roads we go steadily uphill to the Niederscheiben, where we fortify ourselves at the Kroiss'n Alm. Then continue on the forest road to the Hochscheibenalm. Once there, it's all downhill to Hieflau.

To complete the cycling tour, you can cycle from Hieflau initially along the main road, then continue on the Ennsbodenweg (Kummerbrücke junction) back to Gstatterboden. This results in a circular route for mountain bikers between Hieflau and Gstatterboden, which is now only on the Gesäuse federal road in short sections.

The "Ennsbodenweg mountain bike trail" section begins at the Kummerbrücke bridge and runs along the left bank of the Enns for just under 4 kilometres to the "Forstgarten" campsite in Gstatterboden. The route, which has no notable differences in altitude, is on an old forest path, the surface of which was deliberately left very natural.

From here on the main road across the Enns and back to the National Park Pavilion.

Wir haben die Tour schon mehrfach gemacht weil sie uns so gut gefällt. Sie bietet wunderschöne Ausblicke auf die Gesäuseberge, Eine Einkehr bei der Kroisenalm ist sehr zu empfehlen. Einziger Minuspunkt: die Fahrt auf der Gesäusestrasse bis Hieflau (nach Ennsbodenweg) ohne Radweg.
