Adventure hike through the Badl gorge

Hiking across streams and stones

Location plan

A few metres from the starting point at the public car park and the GUSTmobil minivan stop 1213 the route leads southwards and up at the left. Continue upwards alongside the stream bed on trail no. 750. After going past a large rock, keep on for another ten minutes or so until you come to an obsolete forest road at the right on the fork (trail no. 13). Always keeping to the right, return in the direction of Peggau. Forces of nature have created a quaint point of crossing here. Follow climb tracks to the forest road above the Badl gorge and march down to the valley.

After passing the raised hide in the former estate of Binderanderl, a rutted, grooved and abandoned driving track lined with stone walls leads down to the Mautbühel hill. Shortly afterwards you get to the state road, which you follow north until you reach the starting point.
