Tour information

We follow the sign towards „Lodron” from the Raiffeisen bank in the village centre. The route takes us downhill along the road to the Kelchsauer Ache river. We cross the bridge and continue uphill in three bends until the asphalt road ends in front of three alpine pasture buildings. Here we continue to the left hand side on a steep path uphill and later into a forest. Along a ridge we walk uphill and continue through a clear cut at the upper end of which we reach a forest road. We walk to the right, pass the Vorderer Ölbankalm and the Hintere Ölbankalm until we get to the Untere Lodronalm. A short stretch with two hairpin bends along the forest road until a trail branches off to the left towards Lodron, Ramkarkopf. We continue via Lodronalm to Lodronjoch and from there to the summit of Lodron at 1925m. We return via the same route.

There are no refreshment stops along the way, so we recommend that you take enough food and drink with you.
