A hike to Schladming and back to the village of Untertal - the roaring Talbach river as a constant companion.
The hike starts at the trail head in the village of Untertal - the view to the Dachstein range ahead. First the trail takes course along the road for about 250 meters and branches off to the right at the first hairpin bend. This is where the Upper Talbach trail begins. Passing the »Steinwendhäusl« you follow the trail to Hintereggweg trail where you turn off right towards Schladming. You pass hotel Rohrmooser Schlößl, where remains of the castle Säusenstein are still visible. Walking further down you reach the blacksmith Stocker and the Talbach river again.
Here, you cross the Talbach river and after the bridge turn right and take the trail through Talbachklamm gorge back to the village of Untertal. After a few meters a viewing platform offers a great view into the gorge and the Talbach river. Approximately 45 minutes later you reach the starting point of your tour in Untertal.
This loop trail can also be started at the trail head Kraiter-Talbachklamm in Schladming.
