Knight Rider

The ascend starts behind the Eggenberg Castle at the corner of Baiernstraße 24 – Jägersteig and follows the forest road to the Fürstenwarteweg. Once there, you follow the further course of the Plabutscherstraße to the left, and signposts will lead you to the starting point.

The start and the course of the trail are well marked. Finally, the technical single trail leads back down to Eggenberg Castle in Graz. You can expect fast traverses, root sections, stone passages, steep sections, and everything else that determines a decent single trail. If one descent is not enough, you can cycle back up to the starting point at the end of the trail.

The trail is not suitable for beginners and requires ambitious riding technique and very good bike control!

Start: Plabutscherstraße II, 8052 Graz
Ziel: Baiernstraße 24 – Eggenberg
