Tour description:

From the starting point at the Benzeck car park, you follow the winter hiking trail in the direction of Blindau for about 1 km, past the Maria Hilf chapel in Old Blindau and on to the children's playground.

Now the snowshoe trail begins to climb slightly towards Klausenberg. After the first alpine pasture on the Klausenberg, the path follows on the right with a steep incline to the Demelalm.

The descent leads over open terrain and finally into a dense (steep) forest, past the high moor. From here a short climb to the starting point.

Attention: If there is heavy snowfall, this tour can be very strenuous, especially if you create the first track! If necessary, you should then turn back.
