Pyhrn-Priel planned a hike.
July 23, 2019
This hike takes you up to the 2,244-meter-tall Great Pyhrgas. The eleven-kilometer tour starts at the Bosruckhütte. Look forward to a great hiking day with sensational views.From the Bosruckhütte parking lot you first walk eastwards on a gravel road to the Rohrauerhaus (1,308 meters). Here you can recharge your energy during a stop for the further ascent.Soon you will reach the Pyhrgasgatterl, through which the Styrian-Upper Austrian border runs. Via the Hofersteig (number 615) you hike uphill through wooded area, which later turns into a rugged terrain. The trail ascends steeply to the pre-summit. Once you reach the shelter, the climb becomes more comfortable again and the summit of the Great Pyhrgas is not far away. You can expect a terrific view, which lets you quickly forget the 1,170 vertical meters.Up to the shelter cave you walk downhill on the same way. There you turn right to Hofalmsattel. Then you keep left and continue hiking to the beautiful Hiaslalm. Shortly afterwards, you will find the gravel road that leads back to the starting point. There you can reward yourself in the Bosruckhütte with a hearty snack.
