Title :
Kieneck 2 Day Hike - Postponed
Date :
Sat 10.04.2021

Hike, 2 days
Organized by :
Roger Starkie
Description :

Due to the lockdown, this hike will not take place as planned. Postponed until 29th May (see seperate trip sheet)

A 2 day hike, staying at the hut on the Kieneck.  Technically easy trails, but medium-long days.

Possible route will be the following:

Sat: Gutenstein - Unterberg Schutzhaus - Kieneck (18km, 1000m of elevation gain, 6h)

Sun: Kieneck - Hocheck Schutzhaus - Weissenbach/Triesting (21km, 800m ascent, 1500m descent, 7.5hrs)

Possibilities exist to shorten the tours if necessary/desired - e.g. on the Saturday leaving out the Unterberg Schutzhaus and going via the Myrafälle instead and Sunday hiking to Hainfeld rather than Weissenbach.  Exact route will be determined by the organiser shortly before the hike, but participants should be fit enough to do the above mentioned route in the times mentioned.

Note: Whether this event can really take place depends upon the current Covid regulations at the time of the hike. If necessary, the hike will be postponed or cancelled.
