Description:
T

he Lynx Trail is a long-distance hiking trail with 11 stages through 3 internationally recognised large-scale protected areas and touches Austria's first World Natural Heritage Site. It leads through Austria's wild (forest) centre, which has repeatedly been awarded by the Alpine Convention as a pilot region for ecological connectivity.


The wild and romantic mountain landscape is probably the largest near-natural forest area in Central Europe. That is why the lynx was also reintroduced here. The trail draws attention to this endangered species and thus contributes to its protection and survival. The fact that the trail also leads through an extremely attractive mountain hiking area is a happy coincidence.


As a hiker on the Lynx Trail you are challenged! The stages are long and cover several metres in altitude. Your senses will also be challenged, as you will have to keep your eyes and ears open. But don't worry, even if you don't get to see the lynx: You will feel the presence of the wonderful.



Directions:
Lynx Trail Section 01 Reichraming-Anlaufalm    Entrance ticket to the wilderness: through wild forests and over beautiful paths into the Kalkalpen National Park and to the romantic Anlaufalm.   

Lynx Trail Section 02 Anlaufalm-Laussabaueralm    In the middle of lynx territory: through the lonely Hintergebirge to the rustic Laussabaueralm.   


Lynx Trail Section 03 Laussabaueralm-Admont    Back to civilisation: over the Haller Mauern to Admont with the famous Admont Abbey   


Lynx Trail Section 04 Admont-Klinkehütte    Back to Nature: Via the lonely Scheiblegger Hochalm to the sunny south side of the Gesäuse National Park   


Lynx Trail Section 05 Klinkehütte-Johnsbach    With a far-reaching view: Across the viewing balcony with views of the rugged Gesäuse mountains to the mountaineering village of Johnsbach   


Luchs Trail Section 06 Johnsbach-Gstatterboden    Worth seeing: Short valley stage to relax or on a more difficult spectacular variant into the Yosemite of Austria   


Lynx Trail Section 07 Gstatterboden-Mooslandl    Steep ascent: the traverse of the northern Gesäuse mountains via the Ennstaler Hut   


Lynx Trail Section 08 Mooslandl-Palfau    Varied: close to the valley along the wild Salza and through the Nothklamm gorge   


Lynx Trail Section 09 Palfau-Lassing    Hard work rewarded: grand finale in the Mendlingtal as the end of a long but beautiful stage or a shorter variant via the Moaralm.   


Lynx Trail Section 10 Lassing-Hochreit    Step by step into the wilderness: Lonely high-altitude hike past the Hochkar ski area into the Dürrenstein wilderness area.   


Luchst Tail Section 11 Hochreit-Seehof    Mighty final chord: crossing the Dürrenstein and through the beguiling lake valley to the final foot dip at Lake Lunz. Or after breakfast, you can be taken by shuttle taxi from Göstling to the Ybbstaler Hütte car park in Steinbachtal; this saves you just under 2 hours of walking time.



Tip:
 But so that you don't get lost, the Lynx Trail follows existing marked hiking trails and is also labelled. The Lynx Trail logo is usually attached as a 10 x 13 cm additional sign on the existing hiking trail marking. Sometimes only a sticker of the Lynx Trail logo is fixed on existing boards. Spray markings of the logo along the trail will also accompany you.

Vis-à-vis users

1. The tours presented for hiking, walking, biking and road biking, mountain biking, motorbiking, horseback riding, climbing, cross-country skiing, and going on skiing and snowshoe tours etc. are to be considered non-paid tour recommendations and only serve as non-binding information. We have no intention of concluding a contract with the users of this website. The utilisation of the data does not lead to the establishment of a contract with us.

 

The data may only be used for private use; any commercial use is prohibited. In particular, it is not permissible to offer the data on commercially run websites, file-sharing platforms etc. or to use it to develop commercial products. Downloading data does not imply that users are granted rights to the data concerned.

 

The tour recommendations posted were created with utmost care; nevertheless, we assume no liability for the correctness and completeness of the information.

 

We point out that neither the tour recommendations included on this website nor the associated data and information were posted by us, but rather by third parties (Art. 16 Austrian E-Commerce Act). We have no influence on whether the details provided (e.g. distance, level of difficulty, change in altitude, description etc.) are authentic, correct and complete. We do not review these third-party contents. For this reason, we assume no liability for the authenticity, correctness and completeness of the information.

 

Construction-related measures or other influences (e.g. landslides and similar occurrences) can lead to temporary or permanent changes in a route (e.g. loss of a bridge and similar occurrences). Such occurrences can lead to part of the route or the entire route becoming impassable.

 

The use of the data as well as undertaking (riding, walking, taking etc.) the recommended tours or using the network of paths occurs at users’ own risk and on their authority. In particular, users themselves are responsible for the choice of route, outdoor orientation, adherence to traffic rules, supplies and equipment for tours listed in Point 1 (e.g. bicycle etc.), wearing a helmet, estimating their own fitness, recognising dangers and maintaining an appropriate velocity. We exclude ourselves from any liability whatsoever for damages, in particular accidents, that occur whilst taking part in the recommended tours.

 

2.Some of the tours lead over roads with normal traffic conditions. Please observe that there is an increased risk which can be avoided by means of appropriate attention and proper estimation and implementation of one’s own abilities. For this reason, please travel a route that is unfamiliar to you slowly and with special care. Pay constant attention to potential dangers and always observe traffic. Do not leave the routes featured in descriptions.

 

The potential use of private roads, in particular forestry roads and agricultural transport roads, can be subject to legal restrictions, which must be observed and adhered to.

 

The normal traffic rules apply. Each user (e.g. biker, motorbiker) is responsible for adhering to these rules and maintaining his/her bike/vehicle and its equipment (lights, brakes etc.) in good working order. Each user is also responsible for ensuring that he/she rides at a velocity that is appropriate for the conditions and his/her skill level and for maintaining sufficient distance to the rider in front. We explicitly recommend adjusting velocity to correspond to the respective field of vision, wearing a helmet, using reflective clothing (or similar) and employing bicycle lights in line with regulations.

 

3.Each tour requires good physical fitness as well as detailed planning. We explicitly recommend only taking the tours in the case of optimal healthiness.

 

We recommend that you conclude an accident and liability insurance policy. Use an onboard computer that displays the respective kilometres travelled per day and is calibrated for the front wheel.

 

4.Special for mountain bikers – Fair-play rules:

 

Mountain biking is one of the most wonderful outdoor leisure-time activities. Whilst biking or on a mountain biking tour, mountains and lakes, meadows and cabins are re-discovered in new ways. A couple of rules for fair play in the forest help to avoid conflicts whilst mountain biking.

 

a.Pedestrians have the right of way: We are accommodating and friendly to pedestrians and hikers. Upon encountering these fellow travellers, we alert them by using the bicycle bell and slowly overtake them. We avoid paths with heavy pedestrian traffic altogether. Take nature into account: We do not leave refuse behind.

b.The braking distance should be half of the total distance visible: We ride at a controlled pace, are ready to brake and maintain a braking distance half as long as the total distance visible, especially in curves, because we always have to count on obstacles on the path. Damage to the path, stones, branches, wood piles, grazing livestock, cattle grids, barriers, tractor-type forestry machines and authorised vehicles pose dangers that we need to be ready for.

c.Don’t drink and drive!: Do not drink alcohol when mountain biking. Take care at stop-off points (dealing with bike racks, dirty shoes or clothing).

It is obligatory to provide first aid!

d.Marked routes, closed paths and blockades: Keep to the marked routes, observe the blockades and accept that these roads are primarily for agricultural and forestry use!

Blockades can often not be avoided and are in your own interest. Biking beyond the intended path and outside of opening times is punishable and turns us into illegal bikers.

e.We are guests in the forest and behave accordingly, including vis-à-vis forestry and hunting staff. Whilst mountain biking, mobile telephones and music players are forbidden! Biking requires your full attention.

f.Avoid unnecessary noise. Out of consideration to the animals living in the wild, we only bike during full daylight. As a principle, we always wear our helmet (even when riding uphill)! Don’t forget emergency supplies: We always have a repair set and bandages along.

g.Don’t overestimate your skills: We should not overdo it when it comes to biking technique and physical fitness. Take the level of difficulty posed by the route into consideration and make a precise estimate of your experience and skills as a biker (braking, bell, lights)!

h.Close gates: We approach grazing livestock at a walking pace and close every gate behind us. We should avoid causing escape and panic reactions in the animals. Nothing stands in the way of the fun and athletic challenge in the mountains and forests!

i.Traffic rules: The general traffic rules (StVO) apply for all the mountain biking routes and we adhere to them. Our bike therefore needs to be in perfect technical condition and equipped in line with the traffic rules, including brakes, a bell and lights. We inspect and service our mountain bikes regularly anyway.

Moreover, we have no influence on the design or contents of the websites to which hyperlinks on www.urlaubsregion-pyhrn-priel.at lead or from which hyperlinks lead to www.urlaubsregion-pyhrn-priel.at.
