Salzkammergut planned an e-mountain bike ride.
July 15, 2020
Stage 8 of the BergeSeen eTrails is quite a challenge. In addition to the distance and the height meters, a few technical uphill sections will require you, for which you need a little fitness and skill. It may well be that you sometimes have to push a piece. But that is also part of an adventure in the mountains and in return you will be rewarded for your efforts!To warm up you roll over the promising brine path, from which you can enjoy impressive views of the mountains again and again. It leads you directly to Lake Traunsee and to Traunkirchen. The view of the lake provides a real "wow" moment. When the Johannesberg chapel appears majestically on a rock, you have your next postcard motif for your holiday album. Past the Bartelkreuz, the lion from Lake Traunsee, there is a wonderful view of the magnificent Traunstein, the Grünberg and Traunkirchen after every curve.A small climb now leads you up to the Grasberg. The perfect opportunity for a lunch break in the promising snack station up there! Then you take the beautiful descent down to Gmunden. Passing the lido, the Toscanapark and on the right hand side at the famous Ort Castle and the Esplanade you drive straight into the heart of the cozy city.From now on, it is over with the leisurely asphalt cycling: now you go uphill on a shared trail to Lake Laudach. The trail is passable up to one point, but a bit tricky. At the Laudachseealm inn you have the opportunity to recharge your battery if necessary. If you like, you can cool off in the lake. Then it goes a little bit uphill before you enjoy the beautiful long descent to the stage destination Grünau im Almtal.Tip: If the technically demanding detour via Grünau is too much for you, you can turn off to the end of the ninth stage in Ebensee and save yourself about a day's stage.
