Title :
Kieneck 2 Day Hike
Date :
Sat 29.05.2021
Type of event :
Hike, 2 days
Organized by :
Roger Starkie
Description :

2.5.2021: Opening the registration in the hope that this event can take place. I assume there will be safety precautions to be taken to take part in this event, including being in posession of a negative covid test certificate. Details of all necessary measures will be communicated to registered participants.

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 - 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 (or during) the hike, but participants should be fit enough to do the above mentioned route in the times mentioned.
