Schieferstein (via Losenstein)
Panoramic summit tour on the Schieferstein and the Steinerner Jäger
Quality of experience: *****
- Geological highlights
- Botanical highlights
- Summit route
Along a side road the hike leads to Hackbauer and then quite steeply to the ridge, over which you first reach the Steinernen Jäger (1,185) and then the Schiefersteingipfel (1,206m).
Trail number: E71
First the trail leads along a side road to Hackbauer, from where the hiking trail E71 branches off to the right. The path soon becomes quite steep and ends in a beautiful ridge walk (with a ladder!) from the Hackermauer to the Steinernen Jäger (1,185) or to the Schiefersteingipfel (1,206m).
Enjoy the magnificent distant view of the Gesäuse mountains and the foothills of the Alps all the way to the Danube.
Go back along the same path for a while until the path branches off to the right in the direction of Gscheid. Follow this path until the next fork to the left. At the E72 / 476 you get back to the road, which you follow until the fork of the hiking trail in the direction of Nagelschmiede shortly downhill. Return via the Nagelschmiedweg to the parking lot.
By car to the climbing parking lot near the Hackbauern, time saving: approx. 2 hrs. (there and back)
Descent to Reichraming and back to Losenstein by bus/train
"Crossing" via Gscheid and Menweg to the National Park Visitor Center Ennstal or to Großraming
The summit ridge trail is only recommended for hikers who are free from giddiness and experienced!
Why "Stone Hunter"?
The legend about a beautiful girl, a poor hunting assistant, a poacher and a white stag is the secret of the towering "Stone Hunter" (1,185 m).
