Location plan

From Peggau railway station you first make for the Peggauer Wand rock face. It is a nature-protected area, one of the Natura 2000 regions, and its caves are habitat to endangered, strictly protected species such as bats. On trail no. 756 you wander upwards onto the Taschen, then in a northerly direction across the Tanneben plateau (trail no. 12), and west of the Möstl- and Bloderkogel hills back to Pöllau, where there are plenty of refreshment points for invigoration. Going back, take trail no. 13 across the Bass gorge and past the Mautbühl hill towards the Pöllau cement works, then onwards to Peggau–Deutschfeistritz railway station.

A variant is the romantic trail no. 750 through the Badl gorge. But caution! The route crosses the Badlbach stream, is slippery in some spots and is only suitable for the surefooted!
