Starting at the starting point Sportpark, follow the running signs along the Zillerbach to the footpath and cycle path on the Gail. Follow the paved riverside path upriver to the Gail bridge at Müllnern. Under the bridge, it goes without change of direction to the place name Federaun. Shortly after the sign you turn right under the motorway bridge and then immediately left again. At the left side of the road, follow the road for about 100 meters to a small chapel. Here you cross the road and branch off into the slightly ascending road to Oberfederaun. In Oberfederaun keep straight on towards Doktorweg, which after a few minutes opens into another forest road. After about 25 m, a forest trail branches off to the left, which leads to the deer enclosure at the Egger Wiese. At the end of the enclosure turn left again and follow the narrower ascending path up to the burial mounds. It is flat now to Birkenhain. Turn right here and follow the descending path to the spa park at the Kärnten Therme. At the train station Warmbad you use the underpass to get back to the starting point.
Warmbad-Villach can be reached at regular intervals by public transport. Click here for the timetable information!
The route leads over mostly steep forest and forest roads, which require a safe, coordinated and controlled running technique. Two different runner icons have been developed to differentiate the trail running tracks from the normal running tracks and are visible on each additional signage.
