Route description Loicher-Panoramarunde

From the Loicher train station the trail gently rolls a few hundred meters along next to the Pielach (river), to then turn right and become heavy and exhausting, as it alternates between gravel and asphalt to the elevated farms, from where you can enjoy spectacular views onto the surrounding area.

It is important enough to bring along a drink, as already here a first sip from the bottle will be necessary.

By going through the Rehgraben (trench) do we bring the second hard climb behind us. After which, the trail continues from the Bauernhof (farm) Burgstall on an attractive and new descent through the Schwarzengraben (trench) to again reach the main road.

We accompany the romantic Loichbach (river) for a short time and then take the branching of to the right, at first asphalt then on gravel carried almost never ending increase in attack. Around the Brentkogel and the Schnabelstein does the ascent continue, to then be rewarded at the top with a magnificent panorama (Ötscherblick) and currently with the sight of bright blue Wiesenenzian (flowers).

From now on the trail descends! At first one should take it more leisurely, as the line here very selectively - coarse gravel and roots - is. However as soon as one reaches the asphalt road, the trail continues then more swiftly past the Loicher municipal office back to the train station of Loich.

The orientation on the line was and is no problem, as thanks to the Pielachtaler cycling club (www.pielachtal.com/radclub) are the trails in the Pielachtal excellently signposted. After this really exhausting, but "really" beautiful round one can refresh themselves now in the Pielachtaler Moststube (Cider House).
