Title :
Over the Rax - Linear Bus-travaganza
Date :
Sat 17.10.2020
Type of event :
Hike, 1 day
Organized by :
Jake Watson
Description :

To make use of the 'Last of the Summer Buses' - I will do a linear walk over the Rax by public transport.
Using the 341 bus from Payerbach to get to Hinternaßwald on the North side of the Rax,  the PeterJokelSteig ('A' Klettersteig) will head up onto the Rax plateau. We cross the plateau, ascending over the Rax's second top (Dreimarkstein - 1949m), before descending the Waxriegelsteig down the South side to Preiner Gscheid for the 5pm bus back to Payerbach. Time for afternoon liquid refreshment at Waxriegelhaus is anticipated!

This walk is 12-13 km including 1200 m of ascent, so will have to be taken at a decent pace to ensure there are no transport complications.
