This tour begins at the indoor swimming pool in Spital am Pyhrn (elev. 650m). The route and map legend are displayed on a panorama info board.
Along the B 138 (marked bike lane) in the direction of Windischgarsten for 1 km then turn right uphill to Oberweng. Paved road that climbs relatively steadily, flat in the upper parth, to the Flinderlmühle, where the actual "Garstnertaler Höhenrunde" begins. The ride to the start is also part of the “Oberwenger Panoramaroute”.
Our route now takes us for 5.4 km along a well-maintained, steadily climbing forestry road (gravel) which branches off to the left of the Winklertalstrasse up to the Pramfeldner Reith (1,130 m) and continues to the top of the Schwarzkogel (1,296m) the highest point of this tour. Follow the road downhill for 5 km, past a lumber yard and the idyllic source of the Dambach. After 5 km, shortly after a forestry gate, a paved road begins, taking us for 6.2 km to the turn-off for the Schneckenstrasse. First we pass the Innerrosenau biathlon center as well as the Lambergerteich snack station. When we reach the Hengstpass strasse (4 km to Hengstpass, elev. 1,010m), make a left turn into the village of Rosenau, past the big lumber yards belonging to the Rohol company. Shortly after the town center and "Knödelwerkstatt", we eventually turn left onto the Schneckenstrasse supply lane. Steadily climbing for the next 2.8 km, we return to Oberweng - past Gasthaus Zottensberg to the top of this particular climb at 900m at the Flinderlmühle. From the Flinderlmühle, we drop for 6.9 km - into Teichltal valley leading us to Spital am Pyhrn, (or to Windischgarsten). If we have any strength left, we can additionnaly ride the "Oberwenger Panoramaroute" at a length of around 15 km and an elevation change of 270 m, a great chance to get to know some of the mountainbiking opportunities in the Garstnertal.
