Access to starting point:
We leave the highway A2 Graz - Vienna / Wien at exit Pinggau, Friedberg, after that from the nearby roundabout we go to the exit in the direction of the mentioned settlements and Vienna and Graz. Few kilometers ahead at the crossroad of regional roads we follow the signs for Vienna and Mönichkirchen. Further, we drive on Wechsel Straße, and the mentioned road which is mainly ascending we leave at the exit for Mönichkirchen. Next follows driving through the settlement, to a larger parking lot above the settlement, which is situated at the foot of the ski slope.
Path description:
On the right, eastern side of the parking lot continues the asphalt road, by which there are few parking lots, and we are ascending there by the ski slope. After few minutes, we get to a marked crossing, where the path towards Mönichkirchner-Schwaig splits into two parts.
We continue slightly left (straight - path on the road) and we continue on the right side of the ski slope (path across the ski slope leads past the cross Studentenkreuz). Next follows an ascent on a footpath which leads us by the edge of the forest, and all the time near the ski slope. Higher, we carefully cross a macadam road, because in the time of the summer season descents with vehicles adapted for the use on the snowless ski slope are taking place.
Few minutes we are still ascending by the edge of the ski slope, and then we return on the road, where we continue left and we walk to Berggasthof Mönichkirchner-Schwaig.
We continue in the direction of the mountain hut Hallerhaus and Vorauer Schwaig and further we are ascending on the right side of another ski track, where we are accompanied with some rare trail blazes. Next follows few minutes of a steeper ascent on a cart track which is ascending on a ski slope, and then we join the cart track which still continues on a ski slope. Further, occasionally beautiful views opening up, and we follow the marked path to the hut Hallerhaus.
We bypass the cottage on the left side and we follow the signs for Hochwechsel. The path ahead leads through the forest, and at few crossings we follow the blazes. A little higher we leave the forest and we get to the mountain hut Kulinarik zur Stoa Alm, from which a nice view opens up mainly towards the northeast.
We bypass the mountain hut and the upper station of the cableway on the left side and we return into the forest, through which we are for few minutes steeply ascending. Higher the forest gets thinner and a view opens up a little, and we continue a little further and we get to the indistinct peak Steinerne Stiege.
