    Today it was that time again. A challenge was on the program: The treetop path - as an entertainment factor and for the eye, the Hirschenstein with the transmitter - as a challenging mountain hike and finally the natural caves as an extra kick.From the starting point in Markt Neuhodis you first go through originally decorated alleys and asphalt roads, then over pleasant dirt roads up to Althodis.Through the town past Marterl, church and clucking clans, at the Jesus cross (with a great view) out of town. Here you will find information boards along the way, especially about the mushroom population in the area (mushroom educational trail).After a rest at the bank with a great view, a little later the road goes left to the treetop path. On the way back there are some entertaining and informative stations along the way.The treetop walk itself is great. An ingenious wooden construction that leads to dizzying heights above the treetops. Equipped with many educational information boards and entertaining things, such as the listening funnel. A great experience for the whole family. At the beginning of the path you will also find a cafe, a garden with wooden sculptures, play facilities for the kids, and and and ... a really nice place in the middle of the forest.After a coffee we continued our way to the summit. The whole route is consistently pleasant to walk, leads entirely through the forest, but it goes well, whether the altitude difference is pretty tough. There are no benches or resting places on the ascent. The steepest part comes to the end here, the last 100 meters before the summit.But it's worth it. At the top there is a cross on the summit and the mighty transmitter tower with its 72-meter-high antenna, which towers into the sky on a 4-storey building. Here is also a table and bench combination to rest. Of course we did too;)After this long break, it goes downhill. And only downhill. And sometimes with a steep gradient. That too goes into the bones. The faster you go, the sooner. But there is at least one place to rest, see pictures.On the way is also - as a "lost place" highlight, so to speak - the Rechitz Sanatorium. This has not been in operation for a long time and is slowly and surely being recaptured by nature. Something like that is only known from documentaries on TV - Lost Places.We made a mistake here once and took the wrong turn at the sanatorium. I guess they were too absorbed in looking and taking photos. So if you don't want to make the mistake: keep your eyes open;)Continuously downhill you now reach another resting place at the biotope pond at the foot of the Geschrittenstein massif. We did the same. The rest. Was necessary.And here - whoever likes - you can also take a detour to the back, to the "natural caves" listed on Google. Therefore under quotation marks because I personally imagine natural caves to be a little different. You won't find a real cave here. But there are many crevices and depressions in the rock through which no one can fit. Maybe there are actually big caves behind it? Who knows.But why I mentioned this section as a highlight is due to the rock formations. Really impressive. When you stand underneath with hundreds or thousands of tons hanging over you in the form of a rocky transition, that's a very special feeling: What if they thunder down now? So if you are looking for a kick, you are in very good hands here. To do this, however, you also have to climb a little way up into the forest.Our tour was now coming to an end and after a last kilometer of brisk pace (it was already getting dark) we reached our starting point in Markt Neuhodis again at half past seven.It was nice. And recommendable.
    Addendum: And today the next day when I write this comment my body says a bit: Ouch. That's part of it;)
