From Hochwurzen to the village of Untertal
moderate Hiking · Schladming
Walk down until the trail joins a forest lane and path n° 773, which you will follow further downhill. Just above farmhouse vlg. "Pocher" the trail exits from the forest at "Johannahöhe", where you enjoy a great view over the entrance into the valley of Obertal. Follow the trail downhill over meadows past the "Pocher" and "Andenbacher" farms, where you make a left and walk along the road (Ahornweg) until you reach the main road (Tälerstraße) at a hairpin. There you make a right and follow the path to Untertal village.
In the village restaurant Landalm is a good choice for a break. From the village buses run back to Rohrmoos, the valley terminal of Hochwurzen cable-car and Schladming. If you want to walk a bit further you can extend the tour to Schladming with a walk through Talbacklamm gorge (+45 minutes).
