Pleasant hiking trail up into the Bohemian Forest with beautiful vantage points that give you wonderful far-reaching views over the Mühlviertel and the enchanting Bohemian Forest holiday region.

0 km You start the hike in the centre of Klaffer am Hochficht. Follow the signs and leave the village in a northerly direction with a view of the Bohemian Forest.
At the carp pond, cross the road and follow the meadow path briefly uphill and pass the sports facilities on the left. You will come to the asphalt road, where you turn left and continue walking along it. After about 1.0 km you will reach ...

1.,0 km ... an asphalted access road on which you continue to walk on the right. Shortly afterwards, leave the road and turn left, following the dirt road towards the forest. There, a forest road leads moderately uphill. Do not miss the turn-off to the left down to Russenstein. A short steep descent through a small wetland brings you to the ...

3.0 km ... Russenstein. A Russian occupation soldier has carved "Death to the organiser of the war" in Cyrillic script into a large granite block. Now walk further uphill. At the forest road, briefly turn left and then immediately right onto a forest path. Pass the edge of the Sonnleitner meadow and continue up through the forest, along a forest road and then along a road until you reach ... 

4.6 km ... reach the Freundorfer Häusln, where you have a beautiful view of the Bohemian Forest. You dive into the forest in front of you. After about 10 minutes on foot, you will see a simple wayside shrine on a spruce, the Mitgutsch-Marterl: folklore tells of a man from the Freundorfer Häusln who staggered home drunk from the pub one evening. Suddenly black cats - as big as dogs - appeared in front of him. In his fear, he prayed to God. And sure enough, the monsters disappeared. Out of gratitude he had this votive tablet made. (Legend told by Frieda Gabriel from Freundorf.)
Continue along this beautiful forest path and come across a forest road. Turning right, you will soon reach an idyllic clearing. Klein Holzschlag was formerly a woodchopper's settlement. Today, the self-catering huts offer overnight accommodation for youth and adult groups. Downhill you follow the forest road and come to the ...

7.1 km ... The valley station of the Zwieselberg lift.  After crossing the road and the Klafferbach stream, there is a short steep climb to the ...
 
7.5 km ... Holzschlag Event House. The trail continues past the former forester's lodge and the Holzschläger Chapel (under Abbot Lebschy, this chapel was built by Schlägl Abbey in Holzschlag in the years 1876-77) and after 900 m crosses the access road to the Hochficht ski area. Continue along the forest road. 

9.0 km A little later, at the clearing "Gschreinwiese" (above the reservoir), leave the forest road and go downhill to the right into the forest. In the past, seeds for forest plants and trees were grown here for the forests of Schlägl Abbey. Follow the shady forest path, which then turns into a forest road and march downhill until you emerge from the forest, where the Pfaffetschläger houses come into view. Shortly afterwards, you reach an access road and immediately turn left again into the field path, where a hedgerow on the right accompanies you down to the village. There you join the asphalt road on the left (the road to the ski area leads to the right). You walk through ...

11.0 km ... Pfaffetschlag and at the end of the village you continue to the right in the direction of Klaffer. At the beginning of the village of Freundorf, turn right before the first house. Shortly afterwards, turn left into Haselweg and continue uphill for a short while to the ...

12.6 km ... Haselberg (746 m). You will pass the Devil's Stone. It is said that the devil once performed his wild dances here and was interrupted by the Hail from the village. In his rage, he stamped on the stone so that it broke in two, leaving his footprint. Follow the markings down to the valley and back uphill ...

15.7 km ... to the starting point.
